On she always ensured that her family. members were well fed even if she was. away and couldn't prepare the family. dinner herself she was always calling. home to ensure that everyone had eaten. because Leslie's family came first she. easily inspired her sisters with her. enthusiasm and ideas for example even. during the pandemic Leslie continued to. participate in sports by organizing. workouts in her backyard she praised her. mother's various exercises and she and. her sister danc daily in front of a. mirror to music her love of. experimenting with hair color and image. led to a joint business plan with her. older sister to open a boutique the. sisters started designing and sewing. dresses at home in their own distinctive. style when the Corona virus pandemic. struck Rella was laid off due to. downsizing lesie suggested that her.

Unfortunately none of Leslie's friends. wanted to keep her company people were. beginning to let go of their fears and. resume their normal lives they were. still nervous and anxious about being in. a closed space with so many people. Leslie didn't give up hope of convincing. someone to have fun so she posted on. Instagram about her desire to spend the. evening somewhere unexpectedly she. received a message from Eric Wrangle I.E. Bara Leslie and Eric's parents had. attended the same church for 14 years. and occasionally. socialized so the children had known. each other since childhood but had never. had a close relationship lesli knew what. Eric liked the guy who texted her showed. interest but Leslie never reciprocated. she was polite to him on any other day. Leslie would have declined Eric's. request to keep her company but not this.

Time she was looking forward to a fun. evening to break up her usual routine. the entire day was filled with. anticipation when none of Leslie's. friends wanted to keep her company she. accepted Eric's polite and warm. invitation to reminisce about Las Vegas. nightlife the night out with Eric seemed. like a better option than going nowhere. at all we anticipate a fun adventure. Leslie had no idea what Terrible Things. waited her but she probably had a. premonition about something and was. trying to convince herself that there. was no reason to be. concerned anyway Leslie agreed with her. sister to send her regular messages. informing her where she was she also. told Kyla in great detail where she was. going who she would be with and where. she might end up after a while the elder. sister received an unusual message can.

You believe Eric is not going to drink. this evening we're at a party but it. looks like I'll have to celebrate alone. afterward the sisters exchanged joking. messages about the subject to live a. healthy lifestyle the first place Eric. and Leslie went was the casino at the. longhorn Hotel police officers later. discovered surveillance footage of the. couple getting out of a white Ford. F250 owned by Eric 030 a.m. on iub 29. and entered the casino before leaving. shortly after at 1:56 a.m. the couple. then left the casino Leslie kept in. touch with her sister telling her what. was going on at 4:40 a.m. Leslie sent. her sister another strange message I. need to talk to you about something. unpleasant Kyla inquired as to what had. occurred and she stated that a text box. appeared indicating that Leslie had. begun to respond but no response was.

Received received the girl's life ended. with that text message the morning of. the 29th came Leslie still hadn't. returned home the more time passed the. more concerned the palasio family. members became the certainty that Leslie. had stayed the night at Eric's house was. replaced by confusion and the family. went to a familiar house where they. found a strange thing Mrs dibara and her. daughter were taking out Furniture. pretending that they had heard for the. first time that Leslie and Eric had. spent the evening together in fact. Leslie's family arrived at Eric's house. just in time that they had arrived a few. hours later the investigation would have. been significantly delayed the police. found traces of blood in the house a. mess in the bedroom which suggests that. Eric's mother and his sister spent the.

Whole day strangely enough not to clean. up the traces of the crime but to pack. things down to the pieces of furniture. the family was clearly not going on a. picnic but planning a longterm and. thorough absence most likely they had. arranged to reunite with Eric and his. father Jose in Mexico where the two had. traveled in order to escape Justice upon. seeing the palasio family Mrs abara. probably realized that the chance to. leave was gone leaving evidence in the. house that no one would take the time to. clean up panicked mother and daughter. began to Simply deny knowing about. Leslie and Eric's evening together it. was this behavior that led to the. suspicion that something irreparable had. happened fortunately the Las Vegas. Police took immediate action and sent. out a billing inquiry intending to track. Leslie's movement since the previous.

Night but unfortunately it takes some. time to get that data while the Palos. couldn't sit back and wait the family. started a campaign to spread the word. about Leslie's disappearance people. responded and began actively sharing the. information on social media no one. expected that there would be so many. people who cared Eric's mom especially. didn't expect it detectives kept asking. more and more questions and on August 31. Mrs hiara went to the police station and. filed a missing person 's report for her. husband and son Mrs iara told police. that her son Eric left home late in the. evening on August 28th and when he. returned the next morning he was acting. strangely she saw him walk out the door. and never returned the police noticed a. strange circumstance Not only was Leslie. missing but Eric was also missing as.

Well as his father based on this an. investigation into the triple. disappearance began with the Las Vegas. police involved detectives turned to the. residents of the neighborhood with the. hope of finding surveillance cameras. that recorded something important luck. smiled it was discovered that just. across the street from Joe's a. borrower's home there were surveillance. cameras in addition to the CTV footage. police obtained billing data that. allowed them to track Leslie's movements. in the early morning hours of the 29. detectives found that the couple went to. the casino and afterward to a grill bar. which they reached around 0215 a. accidentally or not Leslie's cell phone. was left at the bar and the record show. that Leslie left the establishment. around 550m which is quite early in the. morning at 06 five of neighborhood.

Cameras captured Eric's Car pulling up. to the family home the nature of his. assistance to Leslie and getting out of. the car and on the way to the house. clearly indicated that the girl was. heavily intoxicated at. 0725 M Eric and his father Jose are. seeing carrying Leslie's body out of the. house wrapped in a sheet and placing it. in the trunk of the car Eric then drives. away while Josie hoses down the door. driveway to their house these actions. clearly indicated that Eric and Josie. were not missing but were fugitives from. Justice after police saw the footage a. search warrant was obtained for a. borrower's home as a result detectives. uncovered a lot of additional evidence. showing that Leslie had not left the. house voluntarily the house had been. cleaned with cleaning products in an. unsuccessful attempt latex gloves and.

Trash bags were also found but the most. important piece of evidence was the. discovery in Eric's room traces of blood. were found on the floor and on Eric's. bed an obvious sign of assault and. without DNA testing it was clear to. investigators that the blood belonged to. Leslie from that point on Leslie Palacio. was no longer missing and investigators. Focus their efforts on finding her body. Eric and Jose were reported. missing as investigators searched. diligently for suspects the shaken. palaso family made efforts as well relli. asked members of the Church community to. help search for her daughter's body as. search volunteers flyers and posters. with Leslie's photo and images of Eric. and Jos appeared on social media. newspapers and Street polls the. philosophy of families asking the public. to intervene and help them find these.

Two men involved in the girl's death was. the message on each flyer the first. major breakthrough in the investigation. came when a license plate reader spotted. Eric's Car just 6 miles from his home. around tenham I'll get to 29 he was. heading back to his home just 4 hours. after Leslie's alleged murder the. information uncovered made investigators. realize that the location where Eric may. have hidden the body was within a 4Hour. Drive of his home on the Nevada Arizona. border or the Charleston Peak side which. is a huge area so detectives were. desperate for any additional information. that could help them determine a more. precise location once again luck smiled. on them when footage was recorded at a. gas station 40 Mi north of Las Vegas. showing Eric's car pulling off the. highway toward the Valley of Fire.

National park the car backed up 20. minutes later with Muddy tires the find. narrowed the search and pointed to the. possible location of the body within 20. mi of the gas station the mud on the. tires suggested that Eric had driven off. the road at some point detectives began. searching the area police and volunteers. combed through hundreds of acres of land. and UNT at 9 during the second search. they found Leslie palo's body hidden. near a bush news Outlets immediately. spread the word the body of 22year-old. Leslie pachio has been found near the. Valley of Fire 11 days after she. disappeared a reporter joined the report. providing additional details about the. prime suspect 25year-old Eric Wrangle. ebara the Valley of Fire where the body. was found is known for its hot climate. which led to Rapid decomposition of the.

Remains and forensic experts were unable. to determine the exact cause of death. locals reacted to Leslie's death with. horror in fear some became afraid to go. outside because of the cons down south. of the unquote criminals involved in the. murder the day after the body was. discovered September 10 many friends. relatives neighbors and just random. people in the area gathered to honor. Leslie's memory people took candles that. were used for the nightly vigil and. placed them in front of the girl's house. they also said they wanted the man. responsible for her death to pay for. what he did the fight for justice was. not even close to being over at this. point. the next major breakthrough came when. Eric's Car flashed in MN Valley. California police eventually contacted. Eric's cousin and he reported that he. had driven Jose and his son to Santa.

Cidra where he believed they planed to. cross the border into Mexico the L Vegas. Police Department requested assistance. from the FBI because it was not possible. for them to resolve the jurisdictional. issue on their own the investigation. slowed down then on January 19 2020 1. four months after the discovery of the. girl's remains Eric's father Jose turned. himself in at the border everyone was. greatly relev that at least one fugitive. was now in custody the man was quickly. extradited back to Clark County and. charged with destruction of evidence and. accessory to murder during. interrogations Jose tried to minimize. his involvement in the crime explaining. the story of the trip to Mexico by his. son's strange behavior on the morning of. August 29 however investigators showing. surveillance video footage debunked his.

False claims the footage clearly showed. him helping carry Leslie's body out of. the house and washing the driveway faced. with the evidence Josie changed his. testimony he said he was working in the. garage when Eric brought Leslie's body. wrapped in a sheet into the garage. according to Jos he panicked and helped. his son load the body into the truck. assuming that Leslie had died of an. overdose of illegal drugs because he saw. no visible injuries on the body court. documents indicate that Josie initially. told police that according to Eric. Leslie died of an overdose of illegal. drugs so they also explained that Eric. immediately talked about wanting to end. his life blamed himself and so he. decided that the best thing to do for. his son was to take him to Mexico when. investigators asked yozi for Eric's. current whereabouts he explained that as.

Soon as the two of them entered Mexico. and boarded the bus the bus was searched. by Mexican authorities he and his son. got scared and decided to split up. thinking that apart it would be harder. for the authorities to find them for. this reason he would love to help the. investigation but has absolutely no idea. where his son might be on June 18 2020. one Jose formally pleaded guilty to. destruction of evidence and accessory to. murder despite the horrific. characteristics of his crimes Jose iaro. was sentenced to only two years in the.

Josie Ibara joined the court proceedings. virtually while Leslie's family and. friends were present in person they.

Urged the judge to impose a harsher. sentence arguing that 2 years was not. enough for an accessory to murder who. helped dispose of the body and hid. perpetrator Jose iara pleaded guilty and. tried to apologize to peso's family. saying his love for his son outweighed. him he expressed regret for his actions. however Leslie's family did not accept. his ology and did not consider it. sincere to date Eric's whereabouts are. unknown and he continues to live freely. in Mexico Jose was released to ailia. marketing on April 28th 2020 an attorney. and Palacio family representative. commented as follows I'm absolutely. Furious this is clearly unfair not only. is the primary suspect not in custody. the person involved in the coverup of. the murder is now back in custody after. serving 8 months and 15 days over the. last 3 years the family philosophy has.

Leslie's story demonstrates flaws in the. justice system and raises concerns about. fairness in dealing with serious crimes. the family philosophy is determined to. fight to change Nevada's laws because. they believe that whoever was involved. in the murder should face a prison. sentence of more than 2 years they hope. that the perpetrator will be found and. prosecuted in the United States where he. will be charged and punished. appropriately ailia marketon is directly. contacting those who may know Eric's. whereabouts in Mexico in every media. interview she advocates for the palasio. family to receive some measure of.

Pastor his wife and their three. daughters appeared content having. everything they needed for a comfortable. life being healthy and successful but in. a quiet pool as they say in this case. many questions remained unanswered. because we only heard one version of. what happened and the story itself. became the subject of the book The Sex.

House appeared normal the windows and. doors were intact and nothing unusual. was visible inside there were lights on. in several rooms and they could hear a. television playing loudly in one it gave. the impression that The house's owners. were busy with their own Affairs the. front door was locked. but no one responded to the knock phone. calls also went unanswered and through. the curtain Windows it was impossible to. see what was going on inside or who was. present despite the strange nature of. the situation no one was in a hurry to. call the police instead they called an. elder in the religious community who. advised them to look for a spare key and. open the door themselves it took an. additional hour and a half when members. of the community were finally able to. enter the house they discovered an eerie.

Sunday school and participated in church. activities furthermore in high school. Matthew was very interested in soccer. and everyone who saw him play on the. field noticed that he had talent and. could easily become a worldrenowned. athlete however the young man eventually. decided to forgo a a promising athletic. career in favor of Bible study and. church ministry because the family. head's preaching activity required. frequent travel his wife and children. almost always accompanied him because of. this Matthew attended several schools. throughout his childhood but the active.

Communicative and friendly child quickly. made friends and gained Authority. everywhere when the boy finished school. he and his family moved to Austin a. small city in Texas Matthew was a. creative person with a Magnetic. Personality but he could not boast of. any out standing academic achievements. following his high school graduation he. enrolled in and graduated from Freed. Hardeman College in parallel the young. man began to consider a career as a. pastor his father carefully guides him. Matthew was the youth minister at the. Central Church of Christ in McMinville. he was later appointed to preach at the. Fourth Street Church of Christ in Selmer. Tennessee Mary Carol Winkler Maiden. named Freeman was born in December. 1973 in gu toown Township Tennessee as. the oldest of her parents' two daughters. she was also raised in a highly.

Religious family with strict guidelines. for many years the family's head. pastured the Christian church where the. girl attended Sunday school several. years later the family welcomed a second. daughter Patricia unfortunately the girl. was born prematurely and suffered from a. variety of serious medical conditions. including cerebral paly and sephtis. epilepsy and and mental retardation for. many years the parents refused to accept. the child's disappointing diagnoses and. worked tirelessly to treat her even. agreeing to experimental therapy however. it did not result in any significant. Improvement Mary adored her younger. sister always treating her with. affection and doing her best to care for. her however in 1987 when Patricia was 10. years old and bathing in the bathtub her. older sister was only a minute away.

Taking something from the bathing. accessories and at that very moment the. girl had another epileptic seizure when. Mary returned to the room her sister had. stopped breathing and all attempts to. resuscitate her had failed for a. 13year-old girl it was a huge shock and. the first loss in her life she blamed. herself for the tragedy and was on the. verge of a nervous breakdown teachers. who saw the deplorable state of Mary. sent her to the school psychologist. working with whom she helped but her. father learning about what was happening. made a scandal in forb his daughter to. go to the sessions saying that such. problems are discussed only within the. family in reality the girl never. received genuine moral support from her. parents she tried to avoid any conflicts. and after her younger sister's tragic. death she became withdrawn because her.

Father refused to let her seek help from. a. specialist the trauma over the years has. caused serious psychological issues. following Patricia's death the parents. decided to adopt. Charlotte a little girl girl from a. dysfunctional large. family soon after the couple was granted. custody of Charlotte's two brothers and. sister allowing the family to reunite in. their new home Mary was once again the. older sister caring for the younger. children while assisting her mother. Matthew and Mary Winkler in their daily. lives the future spouses met soon after. Matthew graduated from high school the. guy was prominent handsome athletic and. enjoyed great popularity with the. opposite sex. but to spin novels right and left he did. not allow a strict religious upbringing. the young people developed an immediate. liking for one another which quickly.

Turned into love it was the first strong. feeling either of them had ever. experienced after a few months they met. each other's parents and with their. approval began planning a wedding in. April 1994 the lovers married when the. family had an older daughter Patricia. the head of the family was still in. college and had to take a leave of. absence he took a job on a construction. site but it didn't last long because he. was unaccustomed to hard physical labor. during this time he first became aware. of Matthew's difficult personality he. was frequently angry with others. irritated by trivial matters and. sometimes unable to control his anger. Mary tried not to complain or tell. anyone about what was going on in her. family a Meek young woman raised in the. spirit of patriarchy obeyed her husband. and everything initially the winklers.

Lived near her married parents home home. allowing her to see them on a regular. basis Mrs Freeman was soon diagnosed. with cancer which spread quickly and. left her literally burned in just a few. months it was another shock for Mary and. she was now responsible for her underage. siblings Mary was pregnant again at the. time which complicated the situation. even more however shortly after the. birth of their second daughter the. family relocated to another city where. they purchased their own small home. after the move Mary became completely. absorbed in caring for the baby and. almost stopped communicating with her. father as well as her younger brothers. and sisters who were overly demanding. and required constant attention in. addition the young mother developed. severe postpartum depression everyone. who was close to the Winkler family.

Noticed some Oddities in Mary's. personality and behavior the young woman. was described as an introvert and even. sociophobe she didn't communicate with. anyone it was difficult for her to form. new acquaintances let alone friendship. he had mood swings was prone to. depression and anything could bring her. to tears while Matthew was establishing. his career as a pastor his wife became. increasingly distant the situation. became even more complicated when Mary. became pregnant again and she discovered. a few months later that the fetus had. died in her womb Mary was shocked by the. news as she had been looking forward to. the arrival of this child and had hoped. to see the long awaited two stripes on. the pregnancy test she could only do it. 2 years later and her happiness was. Limitless This Time Mary kept her.

Pregnancy hidden for a long time as if. she was afraid of something she did so. until her situation became clear. everyone resumed discussing Mary's. strange behavior and pathological. reticence Mrs Winkler's strange Behavior. was linked not only to the severe. psychological trauma she experienced as. a child but also to an extremely. unhealthy environment within her own. family which exacerbated her already. unstable nervous system the head of the. family was a man of authority and. demanded unconditional obedience despite. the fact that in public the winklers. appeared to be an ideal married couple. with trust mutual respect and Harmony in. reality their neighbors have repeatedly. heard the husband yell and snap at his. wife for no obvious reason nobody could. have imagined that a respected Pastor. would touch his wife until one day Mary.

Had a huge black eye despite the fact. that she denied the fact of domestic. violence and said that it was an. accident the city quickly spread rumors. about a young preacher who brutally. beats his children's Mother In addition. Matthew at some point developed an. irresistible urge to experiment in bed. he offered his wife to diversify their. intimate life with roleplaying games. adult toys and so on but for Mary. brought up in strictness with. conservative views such was. unacceptable she strongly restricted her. husband in this which infuriated him and. he repeatedly tried to get what he. wanted by force one day after another. abuse in bed Mary called her only close. friend in tears and complained to her. about the situation the friend who. promised to keep her secret immediately. blabbed about everything which provoked.

A new wave of rumors and gossip about. the unacceptable behavior of the. clergyman at that time Matthew was up. for promotion and aspired to be a local. church leader but he was rejected. because of rapidly spreading unpleasant. rumors about him moreover he was also. removed from his position in the Sunday. School where he had brought God's word. to the children and was in good standing. this was requested by the parents who. had also heard about the pastor's. peculiar predilections all this forced. the family to leave their residence and. move to another city where they plann to. start over they huddled in Selma where. they quickly gained the love and respect. of those around them Matthew took a job. as a church pastor again and his wife. found a parttime job to make a small. contribution to the family income and.

Although the family was still not smooth. their neighbors as well as the. congregation of the church where Matthew. preached considered Mary and Matthew an. ideal couple in their family a model. next door to the Winkler family lived a. young married couple with whom the. couple quickly became friends they often. visited each other celebrated holidays. together shared news and secrets a few. months before the tragedy during a joint. dinner at the pastor's house Mary. bragged to the neighbors that her. husband had bought her a gun from for. selfdefense and had already taken her. to the shooting range several times to. learn how to handle it. confidently Mary turned out to be quite. a capable student quickly mastered all. the subtleties and accurately shot at. Target moreover it turned out that the. winklers already had firearms in the.

House which had been purchased by the. pastor earlier also for selfdefense the. guests wondered why the pastor and his. wife needed all this because they live. in a quiet town where they have no. enemies and everyone around them loves. and respects their family following. another move. the couple's financial situation left. much to be desired Mary was looking for. parttime jobs and decided to pursue a. medical degree so that she could work in. a clinic and help sick. children soon Mary decided to improve. the financial condition of their family. through financial fraud she herself. later claimed that she did not realize. that she was doing something illegal and. was going to pay back all the money as. soon as she got back on her feet Mary. was essentially artificially inflating. account balances Mrs Winkler also.

Received checks from unspecified sources. and then deposited them into a bank. account she and her husband own she then. changed the address of the account so. that all Communications would be routed. there the total amount of checks he. received was almost. $117,000 which aroused certain. suspicions of the bank employees who. decided to invite the couple to the. office branch to clarify the. circumstances and resolve the. situation but the pastor and his wife. never showed up at the bank and this. aroused even more suspicion it was. assumed that Matthew was not aware of. what his wife was doing at all however. after Matthew's death his wife tried to. prove in court that the whole story of. fraud was his idea and that it was he. who forced her to make dubious. transactions while he himself remained. in the shadows without arousing.

Suspicion where his mared disappeared to. when Mr Winkler was found murdered in. his own home his wife and daughters were. put on The Wanted list fearing for their. lives initially the meek shy and homely. Mary was initially viewed solely as a. possible victim of the crime however. after speaking with neighbors and. receiving information from the bank. about financial fraud she became the. primary suspect in her own husband's. murder it was critical to find out where. Mary had gone and where the children. were as soon as possible and if they. were okay they along with their family. car were added to The Wanted list. attempts were also made to trace. transactions made with Mary's bank card. and find her location using her cell. phone signal Mary was discovered just a. day later in an Alabama Resort town. where she and her children were having.

Fun at a nearby amusement park it was as. if the mother wanted to throw one last. party for her children knowing that she. would soon be in prison and would see. her daughters again when the family was. taken to the police station to testify. the two older daughters confidently. recounted the same events according to. them Intruders broke into the house and. injured their father so their mother. grabbed a gun to protect them they were. event eventually forced to flee for. their lives according to the girls their. father was still alive and in the. hospital and they planned to visit him. before returning home tatri and Maria. Liza did not witness what happened in. the house and only learned about it. through their mother's words they only. heard a gunshot and saw their father. lying on the floor before their mother.

Put them in the car and drove away Mary. almost immediately began to confess but. she claimed that she couldn't recall the. entire chain of events from that day due. to the temporary blur her her spouse she. claimed had abused her for years. humiliating her and forcing her to. engage in two forms of intimacy she did. not want Mary insisted that it was he. who had initiated the financial scam she. had perpetrated Matthew demanded total. obedience easily lost his temper and. once gave the will of his fist this was. confirmed by Matthew secretary at his. previous place in employment the woman. repeatedly witnessed the pastor. insulting his wife who had carefully. brought him lunch to church but he was. always unhappy with something the even. before the tragedy there was another. scandal in the family because of which.

The spouses went to bed in separate. rooms Mary cried all night and in the. morning she did not realize how in her. hands with a shotgun with her husband. kept loaded she entered Matthew's room. and shot him in the back while he was. still lying in bed Matthew collapsed to. the floor bloody foam oozing from his. mouth and nose according to Mary her. husband while still alive whispered why. she. replied I'm so sorry Mary then took her. daughter and left the house while her. husband according to experts attempted. to reach for the phone to call for help. but ran out of strength by the way the. criminal's weapon was discovered in the. trunk of the car Mary drove away with. the children in she took it with her for. what purpose Mrs Winkler also couldn't. respond at the trial the roleplaying. costumes found in their home were.

Presented as evidence of the pastor's. humiliation and moral abuse of his wife. upon seeing them Mary turns pale and. then became hysterical. despite the fact that she confused her. testimony and told several different. versions of what happened the court. agreed that she was the victim of a. domestic Tyrant and the murder was the. result of years of anger resentment and. pain however Mary was not absolved of. responsibility for her actions in April. 2007 the court rendered its final. decision in this complex and perplexing. Pace Mrs Winkler was found guilty of. involuntary manslaughter but her mental. state raised serious concerns it was. originally expected that the young woman. would be sent to prison for at least 6. years but in the end she was given a. sentence of less than 1 year she spent 2. months of her sentence in a psychiatric.

Hospital where experts were determining. whether she would be able to regain. custody of her children upon release. Mary was given sole custody of her. daughters in the summer of 2008 who had. been living with their paternal. grandparents up until then this. situation deeply upset Matthew's parents. they believed that their daughterin-law. had deliberately killed their son and. received little punishment for it and. now their granddaughters have full. custody of her however all of their. previous attempts to file appeals had. failed the fraud case never went to. trial the bank never filed formal. charges and the entire case was dropped. share your opinion with us in the. comments and subscribe to the channel. for more.

Her love for him as well as her. unexpected pregnancy however in. subsequent messages Lisa stated that. life was losing meaning for her and that. the decision to terminate the pregnancy. was unavoidable throughout the night. Lisa begged David to come to her but his. refusal was firm his parents also urged. him to stay at home and David followed. their advice in the early morning hours. of October 28th Lissa's neighbors heard. a faint cry for help when they looked. out the window they noticed a woman. lying on the floor clearly vomiting the. neighbors rushed to help her right away. calling emergency. services when doctors and police arrived. they discovered Lisa in critical. condition but still alive she was. admitted to the hospital right away. after receiving first aid her children a. 5year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy.

Were discovered unconscious inside the. house. the doctors couldn't help them their. tiny Hearts had stopped beating by that. point authorities discovered the. identity of the children's father and. contacted David aosta who upon learning. of the tragedy arrived on the scene with. his father he learned that Lissa was in. the hospital and that his children had. died after several days of fighting for. her life in the hospital Lissa regained. Consciousness by that point the. investigators had presented the. prosecutor's office with enough. compelling evidence evidence to issue an. arrest warrant for this mysterious woman. when she was released from the hospital. she was immediately taken to a social. Rehabilitation Center the authorities. insisted that Lisa undergo a. psychological and psychiatric evaluation. as her mental state necessitated.

Additional investigation as part of the. upcoming trial Lisa ended up in a. rehabilitation center where doctors and. psychologists resumed their work after. speaking with a Criminal. psychologist Lisa spoke openly about her. difficult childhood in which her parents. fought and abused each other and their. children her childhood had significant. impact on her mental state and moments. of conflict and her parents divorce. became ingrained in her memory such a. childhood forced Lisa to work from the. age of 11 be able to study the girl. aimed to break free from her. dysfunctional family and create a new. future for herself the expert report. also stated that Lisa was abused she. described how after several years of. marriage her husband David changed. drastic Al he began to humiliate his. spouse before raising his hand against.

Her on the day of the children's tragedy. investigators on the scene discovered. several glasses with liquid residue on. the table these findings later revealed. traces of one of the children's epilepsy. pills as well as other chemicals that. needed to be identified after noticing a. strange odor in the kitchen police. officers thoroughly searched the house. and discovered a suspicious area beneath. the utility room they broke down the. barrier and discovered a life less body. wrapped in a blanket with telltale signs. of being there for a long time later. further investigation revealed that the. discovered body belonged to Jamie. yanchak wio a 28year-old who had. communicated with Lisa according to Rosa. Santi aeno Jim's Family reported him. missing days prior to the gruesome. Discovery James sister he was last seen.

On October 18 Rosa told investigators. that after her brother disappeared Lisa. called several times to inquire about. about him Lisa claimed to have received. a text message from Jame in which he. described how some illegal substance. traffickers were holding him hostage and. demanding a ransom of. $8,000 she strongly advised James family. not to contact the police it became a. focal point in a complex investigation. that required detectives to not only. solve the tragedy but also determine. whether there were any other hidden. victims in the story during her. interrogation Lisa stated that she met. met Jamie yanchak wio in 2020 while. working at a cookie factory he'd become. nothing more than a friend she claimed. Lissa wanted to return to her husband. who was allegedly planning to Blackmail. Jame for money David told his wife that.

If she didn't help him he would divorce. her later David handed Lisa a white. powder and instructed her to place it in. Jim's food once the task was completed. Jame fell asleep and never awoke. realizing what had happened Lissa tried. desperately to reclaim her husband but. she was unsuccessful so she swallowed. the same poison and gave it to her. children however it did not have the. expected effect on her and Lissa turned. to her neighbors for assistance hoping. to save herself from the same horror. that had struck her children following. her testimony investigators launched an. investigation but no evidence of David's. involvement in the events was discovered. nobody close to the couple could have. predicted that Lisa Maria and David. acosta's fate would lead them through. such a harrowing experience when they.

Met Lissa was 16 years old and still in. high school she was a dreamy romantic. girl whereas David was a strong. determined young man soon their. friendship turned into strong feelings. resulting in Lissa's unexpected. pregnancy although the young people's. families did not approve of their. relationship David's parents were always. supportive of their son and welcomed. Lisa into their family during difficult. times David's family became a true. support of the young couple inviting. Lissa to live with them they made every. effort to ensure she completed High. School when Lissa turned 18 the lovers. Married 2 years later the young family. awaited the arrival of their second. child a little daughter David's parents. decided to provide the young couple with. their own home they gave Lisa and David. their own apartment which became a Haven.

For the family but the couple's. relationship deteriorated over time it. was obvious that both spouses had sinned. by cheating result resulting in mistrust. and. disappointment boundless love which. appeared unshakable began to Wayne to. make matters worse Lisa complained of. psychological abuse from David prompting. her to seek assistance from the police. she eventually obtained a protective. order and David was forced to leave the. family home at this point Lisa began to. use her position to Blackmail David. demanding money for the right to see. their joint children the beginning of. September 2020 brought Lista an. unexpected challenge that drastically. altered her daily routine the young. mother discovered that her oldest son. was having seizures and in desperation. went to Bea Ortiz hospital's emergency. room after stabilizing the baby's.

Condition the doctors decided to run a. battery of tests which revealed a focal. form of epilepsy a serious disease that. affects a specific part of the brain the. doctors urged Lisa to have more tests. including murai scans and to see. Specialists as soon as possible POS. however the mother seemingly ignoring. the gravity of the situation chose not. to follow these recommendations a month. later the scenario was repeated Lisa was. back in the emergency room this time. with her son who was experiencing. similar symptoms after reviewing the. boy's medical history the doctors. discovered that the mother had failed to. follow the prescriptions given to her. previously no tests had been performed. no consultations with Specialists had. occurred and it appears that the sun did. not receive the necessary treatment the.

Doctors concerned about the child's. wellbeing reminded Lissa of the. importance of following medical advice. they warned her that ignoring the. doctor's advice could result in legal. ramifications as she could endanger her. son's health and. wellbeing however this time Lissa. ignored the doctor's warning a few weeks. after learning of her son's illness she. decided to call. David the serious tone in her voice. concerned. David she told him that a social worker. would be visiting her shortly to discuss. their son's diagnosis in retirement. David arrived for his appointment but. the social worker had already left to. make the weight more enjoyable Lisa. offered him a drink however as David. drank the drink he suddenly felt ill his. condition was deteriorating and the. social worker had not arrived so David. decided to go home and get something to.

Relieve his discomfort the following. morning David awoke in a terrible State. he could hardly speak because his tongue. was numb every step was uncomfortable. and his eyes hurt his parents insisted. on calling the ambulance David was. transported to the hospital where he. spent several days Tess revealed the. presence of a psychoactive substance in. his system but since he had not used. anything of the sort David began to. wonder how this could have happened he. eventually speculated that someone had. deliberately slipped him something in a. public place David was grateful for his. life and realized that what had happened. could have been and far worse in early. October 2020 Lisa decided to hire a. nanny for her kids her cousin Patricia. recommended her friend Bertha a. responsible 48year-old woman seeking. employment Bertha visited the young.

Mother's home on Monday October 5th Lisa. urged her to take a pill that she. claimed helped prevent infection with. the covid19 virus which was at its peak. at the time claiming that it was a. highly effective natural cure Lissa. persuaded Bera to take the medication. and enter the house they sat down to. discuss the babysitter's Child Care. responsibilities Bertha started feeling. sick a few minutes later she felt a. headache her stomach became upset and. she eventually vomited tatri arrived. shortly afterwards she had called her. cousin several times but Lissa did not. answer alerting Patricia she decided to. investigate what had happened and went. straight to her house when she entered. Bertha was already fainting on the couch. Lissa told her cousin about what had. happened and expressed concern when she. realized she hadn't called an ambulance.

Yet depra immediately did so after a. while doctors arrived and admitted. Bertha to the hospital the victim's. condition has stabilized doctors. diagnosed poisoning with a toxic. substance which frequently occurs when. taking various medications doctors. determined that Bertha was unable to. tolerate a component of the covid19. pill composition Marcus Cantor L's. former friend died of poisoning in June. of the same year just a few months. before this tragedy at the time the. cause of his death went unnoticed but. now with all of these strange. circumstances Mark's case required extra. attention investigators searched the. deceased's home and discovered Lissa's. fingerprints on the glasses used the. night before Mark died this fact. provided additional evidence to the. investigation pointing to Lisa's. potential involvement in the incident.

However a new accusation was made. against Lisa her own family filed a. shocking Report with the police it turns. out that on September 2nd the family had. a family gathering and Lissa offered to. let everyone taste a drink she had made. the young woman's seven brothers and. sisters as well as their parents drank. the unknown drink and became ill almost. immediately fortunately no one died but. the 56year-old mother experienced a. stroke Lissa's father claimed that while. the relativ sought medical attention his. daughter stole $1,300 from the house the. investigation now includes not only. crimes against children and a former. boyfriend that also an incident that. endangers the lives and health of her. own family that wasn't the only strange. event that investigators encountered in. May of that year yose Lewis arazzo.

Lissa's friend was discovered dead in. his home Jose had vanished unexpectedly. a few days prior and neighbors quickly. detected a rotting odor prompting them. to contact the authorities an. examination of the body initially. revealed nothing suspicious and was. diagnosed as has a heart attack but one. of Josie's sisters suspected something. strange and concealed a bottle of. alcohol discovered in the. refrigerator in addition Josie's family. discovered that some items were missing. from the home it turned out that Lisa. and Jose were friends and when the man. died the alleged murderer called his. relatives and sounded distraught she. stated that Josie owed her a large sum. of money and that she needed to contact. his family to repay the debt this. cunning plan failed and Lisa called. Jose's family again shortly after.

Changing her voice to conceal her. identity and identifying herself as. Jose's friend she claimed she was. pregnant by him and had to file for. child support although Jose's family did. not believe the stories Lissa was not. about to give up and made a third. attempt to deceive them she claimed to. know who was responsible for Jose's. death and offered to meet to discuss the. details if she hadn't been arrested on. charges of murdering her own children in. Jame the list of victims might have been. longer when the medeia reported Lissa's. arrest after poisoning three people. Jose's relatives. understood they immediately reported. their suspicions to the authorities and. Jose's body was exuded for forensic. examination to determine his true cause. of death the relatives weren't mistaken. traces of poison were discovered in the.

Office's reconstruction the daughter. died while still in bed and her older. brother attempted a few steps to call. for help before falling and dying the. forensic medical examination yielded an. extremely clear conclusion the children. died as a result of a planned crime the. deaths were caused by pulmonary edema. induced Suffocation and intoxication. from a combination of epilepsy. medication and other unspecified. substances most likely insecticides and. disinfectants the prosecution also. charged Lisa with the death of Jamie. yanchak wio whose body was discovered. bricked up in the kitchen the. perpetrator was also accused of. attempting to murder David and members. of her own family the hearing addressed. Lissa's irresponsible attitude toward. her son's Health after he was diagnosed. with localized epilepsy the mother.

Disregarded instructions for additional. tests and followup examinations and. when the boy was hospitalized again his. condition was worsened by her own.

August 2021 appeared to be unfinished. new information was revealed during the. court hearings Lissa admitted giving her. friend a white substance mixed with. alcohol but said she got it from David. however the investigation revealed. otherwise according to a psychiatrist. who interviewed Lisa she did not intend. to end Jam's life she wanted to.

Intimidate his family so that she could. extort money she demanded $8,000 in. Ransom experts described the plan as. disorganized which ultimately led to the. crime furthermore forensic tests. revealed that things were not as simple. as they appeared Jame was discovered to. have poison in his system and the cause. of death was strangulation the body was. discovered with a shattered rib cage and. wire around the neck Lissa claimed that. after her friend died she decided to. bury him in a back room and cement him. inside the store the owner's testimony. confirmed that list purchased building. materials during the time of James. disappearance following the party's. arguments the prosecutor's office. requested a new trial for April 2022 at. that trial an additional charge of. extortion was brought Lisa called James.

Relatives and claimed he was being held. by gangsters demanding $88,000 for his. release the defense cited a lack of. conclusive evidence that Lisa was. involved in James murder nonetheless she. was found guilty and sentenced to 22. years in prison and 5,00. in restitution to the victim's mother. while James trial was underway the. investigation into Lissa's alleged. victims Marcos Kanto and Jose Lis czo. was nearly completed Marcos Kanto was 48. years old and tests performed after his. death revealed traces of the substance.

Ecuador's most horrific and disturbing. in recent years Dona Vado became well. known across the country as a result of. her crimes Lisa Maria is regarded as a. serial killer in Ecuador her victims. have endured excruciating pain as have. their. relatives the charges include five.

Murders and nine attempted murders. according to Ecuador in law the maximum. sentence she could receive is 40 years. in prison this means Lisa could be. released when she reaches 70 years old. it is still unclear what drove Donna. Vado to commit such heinous crimes was. her act motivated by resentment over not. receiving what she expected in life many. speculate that the motivation was money. and in David's case Lissa acted out of a. desire for vengeance resulting in the. tragedy with her children the most. horrifying aspect of this story is not. only the number of victims left in. donavan's path but also the fate of two. innocent children who could not have. imagined that their mother who gave them. life would take it away so absurdly and. cruy share your opinion with us in the. comments and subscribe to the channel.

For. more according to psychologists. teenagers typically commit crimes for. three reasons a desire to assert. themselves and gain Authority among. their peers an addiction to alcohol or. illegal drugs and most importantly a. sense of impunity even for the most. serious crimes miners frequently face. lenient sentences due to their young age. in our story today a school girl named. McKenzie Shilla became the perpetrator. of a terrible tragedy that claimed two. lives at once however the girl did not. feel remorse for her crime and stated. during the trial that she could do. almost anything to stay. alive however she does not consider. herself cool McKenzie repeatedly changed. her testimony blaming everything on a. lapse in memory and appeared to be. confident until the very end that she. would get away with it but the judge's.

Verdict literally stunned the young. criminal and her mother who was. desperately defending her daughter but. let's get to the bottom of this who is. McKenzie sherill Mckenzie sherill was. born in August 2004 in the quiet town of. Strongsville Ohio as the family third. child her parents John gorilla and. Natalie Stevens tried to raise their. heirs with love and care providing a. good education and encouraging all. Endeavors the youngest daughter was the. family's favorite she was forgiven for. many pranks as a child and even serious. misdemeanors were frequently overlooked. McKenzie grew up to be a capricious. demanding and selfish girl she was. accustomed to the fact that her parents. always did what she asked and she was. also confident in her own impunity no. matter what she did the girl classmates. and teachers observed that she was a.

Pleasant and open child when she was. younger however as she Grew Older her. character and behavior deteriorated if. something went wrong she would throw a. real tantrum act impudently and. impatiently swear and even get into a. fight McKenzie did not consider anyone. else's opinions except her own her words. should always come last and she. prioritized her own interests Above All. Else the girl's personality deteriorated. during adolescence but her parents saw. nothing wrong with this believing that. her daughter is in a transitional period. and should be treated with understanding. in patience however bad character was. far from the worst of the issues. Mckenzie was addicted to alcohol during. high school and occasionally dabbled in. illegal drugs but she got away with it. often the girl's actions were Reckless.

And posed a direct threat not only to. herself but also to those around her. parents continued to ignore or refuse to. acknowledge the obvious problem McKenzie. like many of her peers was an avid. social media user who rarely took her. smartphone out of her hand she. frequently posted provocative photos of. herself smoking or drinking alcohol on. her account with equally provocative. comments McKenzie's friends were exactly. like her they vandalized organized. pograms fought stole and were repeatedly. apprehended by the police however the. young people were only given warnings. and educational talks reinforcing their. belief in their their own impunity. Dominic Russo a young man was also a. Strongsville native he was born in. September 2001 the fourth of SE children. for Frank and Christine Russo the boy. grew up with three brothers and three.

Sisters with whom he was always very. close Dominic excelled in school was an. active participant in sports from a. young age and strived for a healthy. lifestyle despite having grown up in a. large family he and his brothers and. sisters were not denied parental love a. attention or care Frank and Christine. were moderately strict with their. children while also encouraging their. overall development Dominic always had a. lot of friends he was accustomed to. being the center of attention and became. the heart of any business the young man. had a bright and attractive appearance. was trim and interesting and he had many. admirers from a young age he tried to. avoid fleeting romances instead focusing. on serious and promising relationships. rouso enrolled in a local University. after graduating from high school where.

He chose to specialize as a Performing. Arts producer he aspired to be a. wellknown music. producer in addition to being talented. and versatile Dominic writes and. performs his own songs by the age of 20. the man already had his own small. business so he purchased a car and. rented a separate apartment in a. desirable neighborhood at the same time. he continued to participate in sports. and was regarded as one of the. University's top students first First. Love Dominic and McKenzie first met as. members of the graduating class it. happened at one of the parties in the. company of mutual friends and this. unintentional encounter proved fatal for. both of them young people were. diametrically opposed and Opposites. Attract Mckenzie was immediately drawn. to a handsome curlyhaired young man. with a strong musical background he was.

Very different from the guy she usually. hung out with he was well educated. polite and interesting and he could hold. a conversation about anything. Kenzie had a striking appearance and a. slim figure she dressed well and knew. how to make a good impression she used. all of her charm to get the guy she. likes attention and she was successful. fairly quickly the couple began dating. in the fall of 2021 and they almost. immediately introduced the chosen one to. their parents but while McKenzie's. parents were Overjoyed with her choice. and thought Dominic was an excellent. couple for their daughter the guy's. parents had mixed feelings about his. passport on the one hand the girl. appeared innocent and attempted to make. a good impression on them however. something in her immediately alerted. Frank and Christine Russo Cheryl's.

Friends and family members we are. confident that McKenzie fell in love for. the first time in her life and sincerely. hop that the relationship with the. chosen one would positively affect her. character and behavior nobody could have. predicted the tragedy that would bring. this useful romance to an end the couple. began to appear everywhere together. holding hands and openly expressing. their deep affection for each other the. relation ship became widely known in the. small town those who knew McKenzie well. genuinely felt sorry for her boyfriend. but the majority were simply happy for. them what was wrong with her too. dominant began to notice Oddities in his. girlfriend's Behavior such as her. defiant Antics and desire to make. everyone around her do exactly what she. wanted at first he didn't pay much. attention to it blaming it all in his.

Youth and desire for attention the young. people planned their future together. including getting married as soon as. McKenzie turned 18 they also intend to. leave their home Province and work. together to conquer a major city ideally. Dominic's time in New York would provide. him with numerous opportunities to. pursue a successful career in the music. industry and fully demonstrate his. talent But as time passed McKenzie's. Behavior became increasingly alarming. and sometimes even scared the guy she. demanded from her boyfriend but he only. did what she asked and if he didn't. agree with her on something she caused. scandals threw tantrums and acted like a. little capricious child Dominic. initially attempted to turn everything. into a joke but quickly realized that. this is the true face of his Chosen One. in public she was still trying to hold.

On but when she was alone with her. boyfriend he unleashed the full force of. his emotions on him sometimes even. pounced on him with fists McKenzie's. Behavior became increasingly aggressive. and eventually the young man decided. he'd had enough he suggested that she'd. take a break from the relationship and. sort out her feelings however when. McKenzie learned of this he had a public. fight in front of their mutual friends. she screamed threatened dominance said. she would kill him if he left her and. threatened to burn down his house and. Destroy his car however she only. increased his confidence that he was. doing the right thing by ending this. toxic and unsatisfactory relationship. obsessive. stalking McKenzie had no intention of. abandoning her boyfriend and at first. she pretended nothing had happened she.

Continued to invite him to various. parties and events as well as post. photos of them together on social media. accompanied by Declarations of love when. Dominic firmly told her that their. relationship was over she exploded with. rage McKenzie went to his house almost. every day and shouted a variety of nasty. things insults and threats through his. windows she called him from various. numbers left messages on his answering. machine posted on social media and. emailed him McKenzie then swore in love. and offered to try to start over the. insulting and threatening behavior. resumed Russo was puzzled he simply did. not know how to respond to such Behavior. because he had never encountered it. before he tried talking ignoring the. exlover and even recording her. threatening moments on several. occasions Tantrums on his phone when.

Shilla saw his exboyfriend on the. street or in another public place he. began to scream and insult him in front. of passers by she'd turned Dominic's. life into a nightmare but he hoped hoped. that with a little more time she would. leave him alone and move on to someone. else McKenzie declared in front of. witnesses that killing Dominic was. easier than letting him go McKenzie. stated that if he did not return to her. no one would have him and she would. handle the situation the young man. didn't take these words. seriously however those around him. realized Mackenzie was not joking the. school girl's most frequent threats. included promises to hit and run over. the guy with a car to put him in the car. and drive off a cliff or to stop on the. railroad in front of a rushing train. each option sounded terrifying and.

McKenzie described each one in detail as. if she had it all planned out long ago. and was just waiting for the right time. and unexpected reconciliation when. McKenzie realized that threats and. insults would not help her get Dominic. back but would only alienate him she. decided to change her tactics McKenzie. became sweet and Charming again stopped. pressuring and harassing harassing her. exboyfriend and instead tried her. hardest to pretend that she realized her. mistakes and wanted to change for the. better she discussed her upcoming. enrollment asked for help getting to. University claimed to have gotten. smarter and was most concerned about the. final exams such changes pleasantly. surprised Dominic D who despite. everything still had tender feelings for. his former girlfriend and decided to. assist her with University enrollment as.

A result they resumed contact and. communication with one another gradually. the couple grew closer again Dominic. began to invite McKenzie on dates. desired to spend all of his free time. with her and believed she had changed. matured and become more serious and. responsible he didn't notice how he fell. in love with her again and all of his. previous offenses remained in the past. however this time around the young. people were not in a hurry to inform all. of their friends and acquaintances about. their reunion their meetings were more. like secret dates where they simply. enjoyed each other's company while. avoiding the close attention of others. when Dominic's own brother Angelo. learned about what was going on he. predicted that nothing good would come. of it but the young man in love ignored. his words a devious plan while Dominic.

Naively rejoiced at being reunited with. his girlfriend and the changes he. believed had occurred to her McKenzie. devised a terrifying Revenge plan. against the young man she became so. fascinated by the concept of a car and a. spectacular car crash that she began to. plan out the scenario in detail in her. spare time she spent hours driving. around the city looking for a location. suitable for the execution of her plan. however there were no high and steep. Cliffs nearby and she thought going out. on the tracks while waiting for a train. was a bad idea one day she drove into a. nearby industrial area which was fairly. secluded with no cameras and few cars. the school girl's attention was drawn to. a massive brick wall and her vivid. imagination immediately devised a new no. less heinous plan she decided that if.

She accelerated to the maximum possible. speed and crashed into the wall it would. be just as spectacular as falling off a. cliff into an abyss it should be noted. that McKenzie originally intended to die. alongside her lover so that their story. could be retold by the entire city she. even informed her best friend about it. but her friends simply did not believe. in the seriousness of her intentions. because McKenzie had previously. entertained such delusional ideas but. everything was limited to empty. conversations a disastrous execution of. the plan and an unintentional victim at. the end of July 2022 just a week before. her 18th birthday McKenzie suggested to. Dominic that they attend an upcoming. party hosted by their mutual friends it. would be a good opportunity to have fun. unwind and let everyone know that they.

Were back together and loved each other. dearly the young man readily consented. he still didn't feel threatened by. Mackenzie and trusted her sincerity and. intentions the event was scheduled for. Saturday July 30 and Dominic and. McKenzie appeared in the middle of the. party holding hands drawing the. attention of everyone present they. appeared happy smiled and openly. expressed affection and feelings for one. another friends were Overjoyed with. their reunion remarking that they are a. stunning and harmonious couple the young. people had a great time all evening and. night willingly being photographed and. kissing in public without China's. permission but no one expected such a. terrible tragedy to end this party the. couple drank a little as did everyone. else at the event but McKenzie secretly. took a dose of illegal drugs for courage.

So as not to change his mind and did not. hit the brakes at the last minute in the. morning Russo and sherill said their. goodbyes and drove away but then a. friend of the guy Ivan Flanigan followed. them and asked for a ride home McKenzie. tried to object claiming that they had. their own plans but Dominic saw nothing. wrong with giving his friend a ride. McKenzie agreed to sign daman's death. warrant because he did not want to fight. raise suspicions or change plans despite. her Lover's objections McKenzie drove. the car her boyfriend sat beside her in. the passenger seat and her friend sat. behind him the car started and slowly. moved away from the party venue. embarking on its most recent Journey. McKenzie drove quietly down the Main. Street staying within the speed limit. and trying not to draw attention to.

Herself she came to a complete stop at a. traffic light although the road was. empty McKenzie reconsidered her strategy. as their passengers dozed off she later. claimed that she wanted to die in the. accident but the perpetrator was clearly. lying because she had fastened her seat. belt during the last stop while their. passengers remained unbuckled when the. light turned green she accelerated and. then made a sharp turn onto a poorly lit. secondary Road leading into an. industrial area obviously the guys did. not immediately realize what was going. on the car accelerated to top speed. almost as if the Devil Himself had. possessed the driver but Kenzie. continued to press hard on the gas pedal. steering the car into a blank brick wall. a bystander and a miraculous rescue. there was no one in the industrial area.

Early Sunday morning so no one noticed. the accident or rush to help only one. woman who lived on the outskirts not far. from the accident site heard the bang. and wasn't too lazy to go outside to. investigate she noticed smoke and as she. got closer realized there had been a car. accident so she ran back inside to call. Emergency Services Medics arrived on the. scene about a half hour after the. accident but the two men in the car. could not be saved they died on the spot. the girl behind the wheel was alive her. seat belt and airbags saved her life. Mckenzie was unconscious and her legs. were trapped inside the mangled car but. she was breathing and her pulse was. clearly palpable giving her hope for. survival she opened her eyes several. times while being released from the car. but she was clearly unconcerned about.

What was happening around her Mackenzie. was immediately transported to the. hospital where she was diagnosed with. multiple fractures and internal organ. damage blood tests revealed that she was. under the influence of both alcohol and. drugs however the doctor believes that. is what kept her from dying of painful. shock while help was on its way the. investigation leads to a confession when. the police received the results of. McKenzie's test they assumed that she. was under the influence of illegal. substances and did not realize what she. was doing possibly trying to drive. through the wall are not seeing any. obstacles in her path this version's. lack of breaking distance worked in its. favor Shere Bella was unconscious in the. Intensive Care Unit following a complex. operation making it impossible to speak.

With her however she quickly realized. what she had done and began to sob and. pour out her soul to the doctor on. duty she admitted that she purposefully. drove into the wall at high speed. because she wanted to kill her boyfriend. and had planned to die alongside him. McKenzie also stated that Ivan was an. unintentional victim due to his own. Obsession because he asked to accompany. them the doctor dismissed the patient. rambling story as a delusional State. caused by anesthesia painkillers and. guilt over the death of a loved one when. the police were allowed to speak with. the recovering McKenzie she abruptly. changed her testimony McKenzie now. claims she has almost no memory of what. happened that night because she drank. and used illegal substances according to. the girl she had a lapse in memory after. getting behind the wheel in including.

How Ivan was in the. vehicle she has no. idea however the facts indicated. otherwise the surveillance cameras were. able to track the first part of the. car's route and the footage clearly. showed McKenzie driving slowly and. following the rules until she abruptly. turned onto a road leading to an. industrial Zone furthermore it emerged. that Mackenzie he had driven the entire. route both ways several days prior and. at least a dozen Witnesses had seen her. car return to normal at various points. McKenzie recovered quickly after being. discharged from the hospital and. attempted to resume her Carefree life. she felt No Remorse and was confident. she could get away with it Mckenzie was. back on social media reconnecting with. friends and making plans for the future. in September she decided to attend a. concert by her favorite band in a.

Neighboring City her legs bones hadn't. fully fused at the time but that didn't. stop her from performing on stage in a. wheelchair at the same time she wore. bright makeup dressed provocatively and. took selfies with friends which she. posted to her account Shilla attended a. Halloween party in October dressed in a. premade costume McKenzie lived life to. the fullest and even met new people. however on November 4 2022 she was taken. into custody tried and sentenced the. investigation took just over 3 months to. gather the evidence and proof required. to bring the case to trial Kenzie was. charged with premeditated aggravated. double murder as well as possessing and. using a controlled substance discovered. in her pocket and detected in her blood. the defendant changed her testimony. several times initially citing a lapse.

In memory when her friend testified and. Court as a witness to whom she revealed. her plan McKenzie changed her strategy. stating that she wanted to die alongside. her lover even here inconsistencies were. quickly discovered because he had. previously fastened her with a seat belt. on August 21 2023 Shilla was found. guilty of all charges however an. important detail was taken into account. the time of the crime she wasn't yet 18. years old she was tried as a minor. because she was 5 days from reaching the. age of majority understate law she was. entitled to at least two consecutive. 15year sentences without parole for. each murder but due to her young age she. was allowed to serve both sentences. concurrently making her eligible for. parole after 15 years. by then McKenzie would be 33 years old. both sides were disappointed with the.

Court's decision family members of the. deceased young people stated that they. would seek a review of the case in order. to increase the punishment whereas. parents and MacKenzie's lawyer believed. the sentence was excessive and filed an. appeal however the judge left the. sentence unchanged noting that he did. not believe sherill would be released. after 15 years in prison the defendants. in his opinion did not repent for the. evil they had done and acted arrogantly. and even insolently in court but now she. will have enough time to reflect on her. heinous act share your opinion with us. in the comments and subscribe to the. channel for. more taking the lives of one's children. is more than just a heinous crime a. woman's altered Consciousness under. strong substances or a painful cycle. emotional state can push her to take.

Such Desperate Measures when the body is. unable to cope with stress the. highprofile case of Veronica Young. Blood serves as a vivid and horrific. example of how a disturbed psyche. unhealthy relationships and constant. stress can have irreversible. consequences Veronica committed a. horrible crime however during the trial. the young woman claimed that despite her. actions she had always been a good. mother and wished nothing but the best. for her children the story elicits both. anger and sympathy but to understand. what drove Veronica to such a heinous. and inhumane act you must go back a few. decades and see what she had to endure. perhaps her own childhood traumas. contributed to this but that does not. absolve her of. responsibility Veronica Youngblood born. Veronica Castro in the Santa Rosa. suburbs of central Argentina in 1986 had.

An abusive childhood she was the eldest. of two daughters in the family and was. raised alongside her sister Mara who was. born in 1988 the girl's childhood was. impoverished and difficult but hunger. and a lack of basic necessities were the. worst her parents did not work abused. alcohol and vented their rage on their. eldest daughter beating her nearly every. day sometimes to the point where she. could not walk grandfather also had no. warm feelings for his own granddaughters. viewing them as extra hungry mouths that. needed to be fed Veronica grew up. knowing she had nowhere to turn for. protection and support she felt. Superfluous in her own family with her. younger sister being the only truly. close person to her when she was 14 her. parents divorced and separated her. father had no interest in the fate of.

His daughters however her mother who was. actively trying to organize her personal. life did not require children Veronica. was forced to become an escort without. an education in order to support herself. and her younger sister as she saw no. other option she became pregnant at the. age of 15. and gave birth to her first child a. daughter named Sharon when she was 16. she never revealed her eldest daughter's. father's name and she probably didn't. know it either having become pregnant by. one of her many clients a member of a. strange cult without support or. assistance as a teenager the girl joined. strange South American religious cult. known as. umand it was a collection of diverse. beliefs and cult positions including the. foundations of Catholicism spiritualism. and African culture in Amanda it is. customary to honor Spirit guides who can.

Communicate with the souls of the deceit. the Cults followers believe in. reincarnation and Spiritual Development. through a variety of practices Veronica. an impressionable and driven girl was. quickly instilled with the peculiarities. of this belief and based on her younger. sister's memories she began to believe. she could communicate with spirits and. the. deceased Veronica discussed hearing. voices and seeing dreams and she. believed that after death. each person's soul is reborn for a. better life most likely such a religious. cult was fertile ground for the. development of mental illness given. Veronica's difficult childhood and her. own inherent abuse of her the other. members of The Cult treated her with. kindness and love which she lacked the. most so she believed every word they. said about moving to the United States.

And meeting Ronald Youngblood when did. Veronica decide to move to the United. States of America it is unknown but it. occurred in the late 2000 when she was. slightly older than 20 taking her young. daughter she settled in Hampton Roads. Virginia the attractive young woman took. a job with an escort service company in. late 2008 Veronica met a guy named. Ronald Young Blood he was a few years. older than her and a pilot in the United. States Navy Ronald and Veronica first. met when he used the services of the. company where she worked Ronald appeared. to be immediately drawn to this young. person as he expressed a desire to. continue communicating. soon he insisted that Veronica leave the. escort and they began to live together. and in 2009 the couple officially. legalized their relationship in one of. Las Vegas's chapels holding a small.

Ceremony with no guests after the. wedding Veronica's life became stable. for the first time and she was no longer. afraid to look ahead and confidently. make. plans she had her own home a caring. husband with a stable job who fully. provided for her and Veronica could. focus on making her home comfortable. most importantly Ronald adopted her. daughter Sharon and cared for her with. love and affection when the couple. welcomed their daughter Brooklyn in 2013. they were overjoyed and the eldest harys. was overjoyed to have a baby sister. Sharon Youngblood following the wedding. Ronald gave Veronica and her eldest. daughter his surname despite the fact. that the child was not officially. adopted nevertheless the girl addressed. him as Daddy and reached out to him. Ronald tried not to deny her anything. paid attention and helped raise the.

Child Sharon grew up to be a bright. sociable and purposeful girl she did. well in school had many friends and was. outgoing and friendly she was involved. in sports from a young age including. being a member of the school. cheerleading team and playing tennis but. the girl achieved the most success in. figure skating so it was easy to work. with Sharon because she felt at ease on. the ice as if she were in his element. throughout her childhood and Adolescence. she regularly competed in figure skating. competitions winning numerous Awards she. was prophesied a successful sporting. career citing the young figure skater. tenacity and diligence unfortunately it. was not meant to be due to an unstable. family life after several years of. living together Ronald and Veronica's. relationship began to deteriorate both.

Spouses had difficult personalities they. were extremely emotional and unyielding. if they were able to reach an agreement. at first neither of them was willing to. make concessions now furthermore the. spouses began to do many evil things to. each other resulting in frequent. scandals involving violent clarification. of relationships Mutual accusations and. insults furthermore Ronald was extremely. jealous and controlling if prior to the. wedding he promised to forget what his. chosen one did he reminded her of at. every chance he got he claimed that he. pulled her out of the mud provided for. her by her child and now he demands that. she follow his rules disagreements began. to escalate into physical assault with. the husband and wife taking turns. initiating the fight both parties filed. domestic violence complaints with the.

Police however in most cases these. reports were quickly withdrawn and the. spouses continued to live together to be. fair the children were not involved in. their parents arguments and were never. physically harmed however their. emotional states can only be speculated. on Ronald was sent to Central America. specifically the Republic of Honduras. for Duty in 2014 and his family. accompanied him during this time The. spouse's relations deteriorated. significantly Veronica reported to the. local police that her husband was. raising his hand against her restricting. her finances by blocking her card and. forbidding her from using the internet. or driving Ronald later claimed in his. defense that he did so after discovering. that his spouse was cheating on him the. husband believed that by denying his. wife money personal transportation and.

The ability to communicate with her. lover he could keep her at home as a. result Veronica filed a complaint with. the US Embassy and her husband was. extradited from Honduras and returned to. the United States however this incident. had no bearing on his career and he was. soon transferred to Washington depd to. the main Department of the country's. Navy however the couple's relations. eventually soured resulting in a breakup. and ongoing conflict in 2016 the couple. reloc ated to Florida where Ronald had a. new job they had virtually separated by. that point but they continued to live. under the same roof and Ron continued to. provide full support for Veronica and. her daughters by the beginning of 2017. the family had relocated again this time. to the small town of Oaken Virginia. where the spouses began the official.

Divorce process Ron and Veronica did not. separate however even after their. marriage ended they lived in the same. house but they C clearly couldn't stand. each other anymore both later claimed. that no matter what they wanted to raise. children together but Veronica had no. source of income and couldn't even. afford to rent a room the issue of the. children's future custody became. particularly acute and Veronica realized. that she would be unable to raise the. children on her own because they were. all completely dependent on Ronald he. was also aware of this and took every. opportunity to remind his wife of it. occasionally resorting to outright. blackmail which drove the young woman. insane d driven to despair Veronica. decided to take out a bank loan so that. they could have some of their own money. however as a guarantor she listed her.

Still legal husband without informing. him when Ronald received a call from the. bank another Scandal erupted naturally. he refused to act as guarantor and his. wife's actions provided him with yet. another reason to humiliate her true a. few months later the couple was able to. reach an agreement and the scandals. between them subsided for a while. according to the court decision they can. continue to live together and raise. their children without being charged. alimony but the truth did not last long. Ronald sued Veronica in the fall of 2017. accusing her of aggressive and. inadequate Behavior he claimed that his. spouse smashed his smartphone launching. it into the wall drowned in a basin of. water with a functioning laptop and. smashed his car's windshield with a. stone following that Veronica was forced. to relocate and was forbidden from.

Visiting Iran at the same time the. youngest daughter Brooklyn was. temporarily granted full custody of her. father until the next court hearing 3. weeks later the divorce was finalized. however after receiving a divorce. certificate the former spouses resumed. living together and the courts and. custody battle appeared to be resolved. about 6 months later the former spouses. appeared in court together again but. this time they presented a multipage. agreement outlining their custody plan. for their shared daughter Ronald was. transferred to Missouri and his former. wife and children accompanied him but. first Veronica wanted to officially. settle a number of nuances regarding. their daughter Brooklyn's custody Ronald. agreed to provide his exwife with. housing near his home so that they could. raise their daughter together the court.

Approved the document in April 2018 with. the move scheduled for August of that. year a month later however Veronica. abruptly reversed her decision and. returned to court the young woman sought. a assistance from a lawyer who was. required to competently draft and amend. the previously approved agreement. Veronica explained that she was doing. this due to changed circumstances by. then she had completed her nursing. school training and had been offered a. wellpaying job in Oakton that way she. could more or less support herself and. the girls with no need to relocate after. her exhusband furthermore the new job. promise to help her find and pay for her. own place to live due to her new. situation Veronica now sought full. custody of her daughter Brooklyn as. outlined in an amendment to the. agreement a new hearing was held in July.

2018 one month before the previously. scheduled departure to Missouri however. the court refused to modify the. previously approved agreement and the. former spouses were to relocate to. another state to share custody of their. shared daughter as previously agreed. Veronica appeared to agree with the. Court's decision as he made no further. attempts to challenge it Ronald filed a. legal notice 2 weeks after the last. court hearing stating his new address. where he would live after the move which. was less than a month away he was on his. way with only a few minor details to. finalize everything seemed to be going. as planned but Sharon and Brooklyn had. only a few days to live a disturbing. call the evening of August 5 2018 Sharon. 15 called emergency services with a. disturbing message the girl was in tears. gasping and in pain she begged to be.

Saved and he expressed his desire to. live she claimed she was severely. injured when the cameraman asked what. had happened she explained that she had. just been shot with a gun by her own. mother Sharon claims she and her younger. sister were asleep when their mother. walked into the room and shot Brooklyn. at the sound of The Gunshot the older. sister awoke literally numb from Fear. she asked her mother what are you doing. Veronica responded that she was taking. her daughters to God Sharon attempted to. flee but ver Monica shot her in the back. she was on the verge of collapse she. made it to the next room where she. locked herself in and called for help. the operator assured Sharon that help. was on the way and asked her to wait a. few minutes but then he heard the girl. scream Indian despair followed by. another.

Gunshot then there was a frightening. silence and the call was disconnected. the police and paramedics arrived on the. scene by 10 p.m. but a horrifying. picture had already been revealed Ronald. who was on business in another city at. the time had also called called 911. requesting that someone come to his. house right away because his exwife he. claimed had done something terrible. Veronica had already called and told him. everything but Ron refused to believe. what she said Sharon was the first to be. discovered lying on the floor with two. gunshot wounds one to the chest and one. to the back amazingly despite the. massive blood loss she still had a faint. pulse and was desperately trying to. survive Sharon was quickly transferred. to the nearest Hospital's Intensive Care. Unit however despite doctor's efforts.

She died the following day Brooklyn's. lifeless body was discovered in her. bedroom on her own bed she was killed. with a single gunshot to the Head the. girl's father arrived about an hour. later and dashed home as quickly as he. could but Veronica's whereabouts. remained unknown until the Emergency. Services received another call from one. man well Bellows who reported Veronica's. whereabouts who is Manuel Manuel was one. of the lawyers the young woman consulted. with in the spring of 2018 regarding. custody of her youngest daughter. Veronica as the lawyer later argued in. court immediately struck him as a rather. serious collected and responsible young. woman fighting for custody of her. beloved daughters furthermore she was. very attractive in appearance divorced. and not in a relationship at the time. the two quickly hit it off resulting in.

A turbulent love affair only a few. months later Manuel noticed some. Oddities in her behavior that peaked his. interest specifically Veronica's. religious beliefs and her frightening. statements about the upcoming meeting. with God at the end of July Veronica. called Manuel and invited him to her. house saying they needed to have a. serious. conversation when he arrived the young. woman was home alone while her. exhusband and children were staying. with Ronald's relatives the lights were. turned off in the house but candles were. lit everywhere creating a romantic. atmosphere and there was a dinner for. two on the table she told him that she. had lost the nursing position she'd been. looking forward to and refused to move. to another state as a result Veronica. also shocked her boyfriend when she. revealed that she was pregnant by him.

This information was later refuted. Manuel didn't know how to react so. Veronica tried to seduce him and entice. him into intimacy according to Manuel. nothing happened between them that night. because Veronica made him feel strangely. uncomfortable and threatened as if his. life was in danger he asked her for time. to consider how to proceed before. hurriedly leaving her house on the. evening of August 5 Manuel heard someone. ring his doorbell he opened the door to. find Veronica on the doorstep she was. frighteningly calm with no emotion on. her face at all Veronica requested to be. led into the house but before Manuel. could do so he noticed a gun in her. hands and was so terrified that he. threatened to call the police if she. didn't leave right away but Veronica. with the same Stony expression responded. that he could do so because she no.

Longer. cared she then revealed that she had. killed her. daughters so the police were looking for. her anyway Manuel became very scared. after hearing these words so he closed. the door and rushed to the phone while. Veronica returned to her rental car she. came in and waited to be arrested the. arrest and a complete picture of the. crime when the police arrived at. Manuel's house Veronica was in the. driver's seat and next to her in the. passenger seat were the loaded guns he. had used to shoot her daughters hours. before the young woman did not resist. her face remained expressionless in. addition to the gun several full. magazines were discovered in the car. already at the station Veronica admitted. that she had purchased the gun at an. exhibition 10 days prior in order to. murder her daughters and then commit.

Suicide according to her she decided to. take this desperate step to exact. revenge on her exhusband and prevent. him from taking their common daughter. Brooklyn she also stated that her. personal life did not work out and she. became. depressed apparently the oldest daughter. noticed her mother's strange behavior. and suspected something was wrong. because a few days before the tragedy. she asked her directly if she intended. to kill them but what the mother said to. her remains a mystery on the afternoon. of August 5 Veronica gave her daughter. Suite in which she had previously mixed. sleeping pills so that the girls would. not resist when they fell asleep in. their room the mother pulled out a. loaded gun and went to her daughter's. she first went to Brooklyn's crib but. then raised the gun to her head and. pulled the trigger Sharon was startled.

Awake by The Gunshot but she didn't. realize what was going on until she. asked her mother Veronica replied that. she would take her and her sister to God. before pointing the gun at her eldest. daughter but Sharon jumped out of bed. dashed to the door and was immediately. shot in the back she was able to run to. the next room and call for help while. her mother attempted to open the door. when Veronica entered the room Sharon. screamed and received a second bullet in. the chest. Veronica then called her exhusband and. told him what she had done and that she. was going to commit suicide as well she. blamed Ronald for everything claiming. that she hated him and that he had. ruined her life however the young woman. changed her mind about leaving her life. for unknown reasons and went to her. boyfriend's house where she was arrested.

Young Blood fully admitted her guilt and. when asked what punishment she would. impose on herself the woman suggested. the death penalty it is worth noting. that in Virginia. such a measure has not been used in a. long time and Veronica was aware of this. trial and sentence initially the. defendant declined the services of a. lawyer and fully admitted her guilt but. she abruptly changed her testimony and. decided to hire a public defender she. later claimed that she heard voices. telling her to do this to her daughters. and she obeyed Veronica also stated that. she had a difficult childhood recalling. only beatings and hunger and that her. exhusband had finally killed her faith. in the possibility of finding happiness. in life she added that she did not want. her daughters to face the same fate the. trial took a long time because Veronica.

Refused to leave her cell and attend the. sessions furthermore she attempted. suicide several times but was saved each. time and did not inflict Serious injury. on herself the defense attorney. attempted to persuade the court that his. client suffers from a mental disorder. that developed as a result of childhood. traumas the influence of a religious. cult and abuse by her former husband. the defense lawyer also claimed that. Veronica was insane during the climb and. was unaware of her actions despite the. lawyer's efforts the court saw cold. calculation in the woman's actions. because she had purchased weapons in. advance promised the children's Suites. in exchange for sleeping pills and then. proceeded to carry out her terrible plan. her actions were not spontaneous they. could not be dismissed as a state of.

Effect or a severe deterioration of. mental illness the final verdict in the. case was issued in March 2023 Veronica. was convicted and sentenced to 78 years. in prison in fact this will be her life. sentence many people thought Ronald's. behavior in court was strange he did not. appear to be a grieving father and when. his former wife sobbed in court he. smirked following the verdict he only. stated that he was pleased with the. outcome share your opinion with us in. the comments and subscribe to the. channel for more. an unthinkable event occurred on a. summer day in the heart of burrow Park a. closeknit community in Brooklyn New.

Delightful Children kind and optimistic. and she always tried to convey her. Eternal optimism to those around her she. was this way because of her father Carly. had blonde hair blue eyes and an. upturned Nose friends relatives and. others recognized her beauty and. character everyone predicted that she.

Would one day become a wellknown model. or actress however Carly's relatives and. she were unaware that this would not. occur January 31 2004 was an ordinary. day on her weekend Carly decided to. spend the night at a friend's house when. the girls spent the night at each. other's house they did everything that. any girlfriend would they painted one. another's Nails listened to music and. gossiped about their. classmates the girls were so engrossed. in their visits that they didn't realize. it was already evening as is customary. in all families on Sunday nights the. entire family gathered to watch the. Super Bowl game Carly desperately wanted. to get home by then so she informed her. friend's mother that her parents were. waiting for her at home and that she. could go home alone the friend's mother. was concerned but Carly insisted on.

Going home at 6:00 p.m. for 13 minutes. that is how long it took to get to the. street with the. brues it was just 750 m after Carly left. the friend's mother contacted the. parents because she was concerned and. informed them that Carly had left alone. Susan Carly's mother was very concerned. about her daughter who had gone alone. despite the fact that the distance was. only two blocks so a concerned Susan. asks Steven her husband's stepfather to. come out and meet her Steven immediately. goes outside to meet Cari they were to. meet halfway and enter the store Steven. was always spoiling his stepdaughter and. the night before the match he promised. to buy her a bunch of sweets Steven. walked the entire route several times. but could not locate Carly she vanished. Carly and her parents lives are plunged. into horror from that point forward the.

Feelings of concern and excitement were. not futile because in the future they. anticipated events that would shock the. entire city Steven searched for Carly. for more than an hour he drove past the. route a few more times hoping that he. and Carly had simply diverged however it. was clear that something had happened to. her after all the distance between the. houses was manageable and everyone was. familiar with the route Susan and Steven. set out again to find Carly they walked. the streets and drove through. neighborhoods shouting and searching for. the Girl by name they looked through all. the suspicious areas including a wooded. landing and then noticed something. strange a red tow truck was driving. slowly past them so they decided to. follow Susan and Steven continued to. follow the tow truck and discovered that.

It was headed to Carly's friend's house. which surprised them the same red tow. truck that they had seen earlier was. parked outside her friend's house where. Carly had exited a few hours before and. vanished it was parked outside Carly's. friend's home the red toe truck struck. the parents as unusual Susan calls 911. after realizing Carly is nowhere to be. found when an adult goes missing police. typically wait 24 hours before. conducting a search searching for. children always necessitates immediate. action as a result the officers. immediately divided into teams and began. interviewing Carly's friends family and. Carly's own parents Steve and Susan. detectives investigate the route in the. immediate area however she could not be. found Steven and Susan are desperate and. have no idea what to do during the. search Friends of Carly's family can.

Find Flyers with a photo and the. inscription missing Carly and all of the. city's walls and polls when people began. to doubt Steven Carly St stepfather. while he was handing out flyers at a. local company he asked one of the. employees if he could buy illegal. substances for him the employees were. suspicious because his stepdaughter had. only gone missing for a few days. employees reported the incident to. authorities the detectives also kept an. eye on Steven believing he was. suspicious the police decided to bring. Steven in for questioning during the. interrogation stepen stated that he had. been with Susan at home the entire time. which she confirmed furthermore while. walking down the street to meet her from. a friend he was on the phone with Susan. the entire time as phone records show. Steven reported that he did not find.

Cari despite walking her route for more. than an hour Steven remained a suspect. even after his Alibi had been thoroughly. investigated however Steven remembered a. suspicious red tow truck that he and. Susan had seen the day it went missing. its owner was Ron shid Ron had been. dating his friend Carly's mother for. months Steven told police that he saw. the truck driving slowly near a wooded. area shortly after Carly's disappearance. and then stopping near Carly's friend's. home investigators began testing that. theory as well they called Ron in for. questioning Ron stated that he had left. for work before Carly did and had. noticed nothing unusual the police also. tracked Ron's movements that day checked. his Alibi and ruled him out as a suspect. because he was at work when Carly went. missing as confirmed by his employer and.

Surveillance cameras the day after. Carly's disappearance the police decided. to contact SU. again she claimed to the police officers. that her daughter had never run away. before and she had no reason to believe. Carly would have run away however the. information provided by Carly's friends. differed significantly from Susan's. version Carly's friend reported to the. police that she had been extremely. depressed and upset the day before in. her conversations she expressed. reluctance to return home claiming that. she had too many responsibilities this. new information prompted law enforcement. officials to consider the possibility. that Carly had left voluntarily however. given her young age investigators cannot. completely rule out the Abduction the. Thor in order to provide complete. Clarity investigators have asked Susan.

To contact Carly's dentist and obtain. dental records which could be useful if. identification is required the next. morning police officers used police dogs. to search for Carly Susan and Steven. allowed the dogs canine handlers into. their daughter's bedroom the dogs. sniffed the bedroom Linens and the. girl's clothes before picking up the TR. Trail they followed Carly's planned. route from her friend's house to her own. Carly's tracks LED police to a car wash. where she apparently attempted to take a. shortcut the dogs lost track of Carly. near the Car Wash's back. entrance fortunately the area was. equipped with two cameras one capturing. cars closer to the entrance and the. other capturing cars farther away. unfortunately for the cops there were. some blind spots that remained hidden. police recognize that if Carly was taken.

Away by a criminal it is UN likely that. he did so under camera surveillance but. they sat down to examine the footage the. camera at the entrance did not record. anything officers reviewed all footage. from 600 p.m. there was no footage from. 9:00 p.m. onward however a second camera. in the far Corner caught some. interesting moments at. 62 1 pem it captivated Carly she walked. with a calm stride toward the house. Carly wore the same red tshirt and blue. jeans with her hair styled in a small. bundle suddenly a man appeared in the. frame whskinned stocky of medium. height with dark hair and a unique. tattoo on his forearm The Stranger wore. dark blue work overalls with a name tag. as if he worked at a gas station or Car. Service the alleged perpetrator. approached Carly and said something. grabbing her wrists and dragging her.

Toward the camera's blind spot this was. likely the last person to see Carly. alive criminal or not he should have. been found as soon as possible and. learned what happened in that parking. lot on February 1 at 6:21 p.m. the poor. quality of the security camera footage. made it impossible to see the man's face. let alone his name tag The Only Hope was. to involve the public in the search the. cck TV footage had been widely. publicized for 24 hours and had been. published in newspapers they needed to. spread the word as widely as possible. maybe someone could recognize a person. based on their shape and construct in. our gate the police set up a special. call center in the hopes of learning. more about what happened to Carly or at. least some information from potential. eyewitnesses within 24 hours they had. received over 700 calls operators.

Recorded every statement but they were. all unsuccessful until late in the. evening when they received a lead that. led them to the. perpetrator on Tuesday February 3 police. received a call from a man who claimed. to know the man on the videotape the. caller introduced himself as one of his. business associates he stated that the. man's name is Joseph Smith and he is. easily identified by his peculiar. uniform and awkward gate police officers. immediately grabbed a longawaited lead. operators continued to answer the phone. detectives checked Joseph Smith's. information the man moved to Sarasota. County from Brooklyn New York in 2003 he. was an auto mechanic by trade and had. been married but divorced twice his. three adult daughters were college. graduates the newest suspect was 37. years old he had a long criminal record.

Dating back to. 1993 there were several charges. including solicitation of minors Joseph. Smith who had back problems for most of. his life was severely addicted to. illegal drugs he'd been arrested several. times including three for assaulting. women Carly's disappearance occurred. while he was on probation one of Smith's. coworkers reported that he had been. acting strangely since Carly's. disappearance and the day before he had. not shown up for work at all he also. stated that Smith had used illegal. substances. this coworker confirmed that the man on. the videotape closely resembled Smith in. appearance demeanor and clothing another. coworker confirmed that the man in the. videotape closely resembled Joseph Smith. and stated that the day after Carly was. kidnapped Smith arrived at work under. the influence of illegal substances.

Smith's coworkers claimed Joseph was. having problems at work due to illegal. drugs and debt the police decide to. reexamine all of the car wash videos. from shortly before Carly's abduction in. an attempt to connect the kidnapper to. one of the cars passing or stopping near. the car wash Joseph's coworkers said he. drove a brown linoln however at the time. of the abduction it was being repaired. police investigated a light colored. Buick station wagon that pulled into the. car wash parking lot about 3 minutes. before Carly was abducted the car. briefly stopped in the parking lot. before driving away the quality of the. video footage prevented the police from. determining the license plate number or. identifying the driver the police. decided to go to Joseph Smith's home. officers arrived at Joseph's friend's. home where he was renting a room after.

His wife kicked him out Joseph opened. the door surprised and shocked that he. had been mistaken for the kidnapper the. police officers continued to question. Joseph focusing on the specifics of his. Alibi Joseph insisted that he was at. home watching the Super Bowl when Carly. went missing and that his friends. confirmed his presence at the time. however when shown a video camera image. of a man who closely resembled him Jo. Joseph abruptly admitted that the man. looked like him ysep abruptly admitted. that the man looked like him however he. insisted that he was at home that. evening and couldn't have been near the. car wash the detectives decided to. conduct additional checks by having. Joseph show his hands and roll up his. sleeves during this check it was. discovered that Joseph had tattoos on. his forearm that match those seen in the.

Surveillance footage additionally. investigators discovered several fresh. scratches on his face and hands during. subsequent interviews with investigators. Joseph admitted that he did borrow a. light colored station wagon from his. friends that day however he claimed that. he only drove it to a nearby Marina to. enjoy the water view before returning. home the investigation continued the. police were certain that Joseph was. involved in Carly's disappearance. however the owner of the apartment from. which he rented Mimi confirmed his Alibi. which perplexed investigator slightly. the police searched Joseph's Lincoln. thoroughly and discovered several. syringes in side Joseph was arrested for. using illegal substances and spoons as. well as violating his probation terms a. few hours following Joseph's arrest Jeff.

Pinkis Joseph's friend and Mimi's. husband contacted police and informed. them that Mimi had mixed up the dates in. Her statement they stated that they had. indeed lent him their car but that he. had not returned in the evening as. promised and had not arrived until. shortly before Dawn they also testified. that before Joseph left they checked the. odometer and when Joseph returned they. discovered that it had traveled more. than 300 miles and the car inside. appeared shabby the back seat was down. the officers then asked Joseph's friends. if they remembered what Joseph was. wearing when he left the home Jeff. replied that he was wearing a mechanic's. uniform the police officers knew it but. they needed to find indisputable. evidence of Joseph's involvement in the. case the police obtained permission from. Joseph's friends to search their home or.

Joseph rented a room however they found. no evidence linking Joseph to Carly's. Disappearance in addition the police. were still unable to locate Carly police. searched the wooded areas near where. Carly was last seen on. videotape however the search produced no. results while the police were searching. for Carly one of Joseph's longtime. acquaintances visited the police station. he confirmed that the man on the. videotape looked a lot like Joseph and. provided some critical information the. man stated that Joseph had recently. spoken about his growing desire to. assault women following this. conversation police officers took Joseph. from the jail to the station for. questioning Joseph entered the. interrogation room he wanted to talk to. his mother or brother the detective. persuaded Joseph to contact the public.

Defender office and have an attorney. come to him during the interrogation the. officers were unable to extract any. information from Joseph so he was. returned to jail he was finally able to. speak to his brother John what he told. his brother confirmed all of their worst. fears 5 days after Carly disappeared. Joseph's brother John decided to contact. the police and reveal a terrible secret. he showed the police where Carly's body. was he led them to the church on Proctor. Road in the woods John revealed that his. brother had confessed to kidnapping and. brutally attacking Carly John claimed. that Joseph had killed Carly beaten her. and strangled her with a shoelace he. admitted that he wanted to use sharp. instruments but was afraid he'd be. unable to wash the car afterwards the. confession was so cruel and disgusting.

That the brothers were unable to express. their feelings and were deeply shocked. by such a terrible secret here's his. brother's secret Jon suspected that he. had used forbidden substances or. committed theft but he never imagined. that he would get to this point then. Joseph's mother informed the police that. her son had contacted her and confessed. to his actions the police discovered. Carly's remains precisely where John had. pointed Carly was clearly struggling and. fighting for survival the in. investigation determined that the death. was caused by strangulation detectives. also confirmed that Joseph assaulted. Carly's body a forensic examination. revealed traces of Joseph's DNA on. Carly's body as well as fibers from. Joseph's clothes and hair that is the. perpetrator's guilt was fully proven in. the car that Joseph borrowed from.

Friends that day as were Carly's hair. and several fibers of clothing that. matched the one she was wearing at the. time Joseph was charged with murder the. defense attorney attempted to argue that. the police officers framed his client. but Joseph's bodily fluids and hair were. discovered on Carly's body according to. the prosecutions version Joseph Smith. took a large dose of psychotropic drugs. that day the public was then outraged. that a man with such a criminal past and. criminal Tendencies had been released so. quietly from prison where he had been. imprisoned 13 times in the previous 10. years also about a month before Carly's. kidnapping local authorities asked a. Florida judge to issue a warning War for. Joseph Smith's arrest for a probation. violation the judge however denied. issuing the warrant citing the police's.

Failure to complete the required. paperwork and so it was argued that if. this man had been shielded from society. from the start this terrible case might. not have occurred little Carly would be. alive and her mother would not have to. go through all of these traumatic events. the day everything was decided was. October 24 2005 Joseph Smith was. convicted of firstdegree murder and. sentenced to death via lethal injection. he remained in prison waiting for his. death sentence Smith was also suspected. in the 2,000 murder of Tara Riley 25 who. was discovered dead and naked in a pond. behind a Walmart store but the case was. never solved although John who opposed. his brother in court claimed that Joseph. was the one who killed Tara he is a. coward and refuses to admit it JN was. certain that his brother was also guilty.

Of this John stated my brother is the. ultim ulate coward he has spent his. entire life insulting and humiliating. those who are weaker than him he will. never admit what he has done and if he. is released who knows how many innocent. lives he will take he's always been like. this which is why his wife left him but. his parents believed until the end that. he was a good man on July 18 2017. Joseph's death sentence was overturned. and a new legislation was signed it. stated that the jury would vote 10 out. of 10 in favor of the death penalty Jose. was scheduled to have a new sentencing. hearing however it was postponed Susan. Carly's mother began using illegal. substances immediately after learning of. her daughter's death she was devastated. by the death of her only daughter Susan. tried to pull herself together assisting.

The children's defense fund and other. parents in their search for the missing. with all of her might she tried to help. others avoid such traumatic events after. all Susan knew what it was like to go. through such an experience but after. learning that Joseph would be pardoned. and possibly released Susan lost the. meaning of life couldn't take it anymore. and died by taking a lethal dose of. forbidden substances Smith was awaiting. a sentencing review hearing scheduled. for 2019 which could have saved his life.

Charles Tye and JJ settled in a popular. tourist area and decided to open their.

Own beach bar that served fresh juices. smoothies refreshing drinks and. nonalcoholic cocktails despite their. best efforts the availability of raw. materials and Charles experience in. trade the business failed quickly due to. Fierce. competition Lori developed an interest. in religious literature around this time. and she was particularly drawn to Chad. de Bell's standing in holy place's. series of books she became fascinated by. the occult writer's ideas and became. almost obsessed with them she bought all. of his works and read them every day. Lori valow and Chad debel met in 2016. the family was forced to leave Hawaii. and relocate to the mainland they. settled in Arizona and while Charles. worked hard to provide for the family. his wife Lori became increasingly. involved in Rel religion drifting away. from reality Lori and her close friend.

About a dozen people gathered at the. Val's house to discuss God's Judgment. Day and the second coming Lori and Chad. also agreed to work together to prepare. people for the Dreadful judgment the. pair began producing podcasts about the. event as well as leading sermons and. writing articles Lori became. increasingly detached and hatched from. reality in her family but Charles did. not notice the change he expected it to. be a passing fad it was too late when he. realized how far things had progressed. Lori soon began discussing dark spirits. and zombies tell telling family and. friends that God had chosen her for a. special Mission part of this Mission. entails eliminating the spirits of. Darkness demons and all evil Charles. attempts to bring his wife back to. reality failed and she began to see him. as one of the evil entities that needed.

To be destroyed Charles Val's tragic End. by the end of 2018 Lori and Charles. Val's marriage was about to. collapse Lori changed all of the locks. in their shared home in February 2019. while Charles was away on business for a. week. when Charles returned he found himself. locked out of his own home his personal. car and the family truck missing and a. significant amount of $35,000 had been. withdrawn from his account Charles. loudly called out for his wife and. attempted to enter the house Lorie. stormed outside hurling threats and. curses she screamed that her husband's. Soul had long died and that his body had. been possessed by a demon repeatedly. saying I don't know who you are or what. you've done to my husband without. hesitation Charles went to the police. station and reported Lori for theft and. interference with his home and children.

He expressed concerns about Lor's. threats of physical harm against him. which resulted in the issuance of a. protective order prohibiting her from. approaching him the statements made by. Charles that evening were recorded in. accordance with standard procedure he. discussed his wife's excessive religious. Zeal her belief in the impending end of. the world and her tendency to categorize. people as light or demonic beings while. asking clarifying questions the officers. openly mocked him but issued the. protective order the following day. Charles filed for divorce and changed. the beneficiaries of his $1 million life. insurance policy from Lori to his mother. and sister his lawyer stated that. Charles was concerned about JJ's well. bailing as he required special care he. was confident that his mother and sister.

Would handle the insurance payout. responsibly and care for the boy in the. event of his death Ty's stepfather had. not legally adopted her so the documents. could not include a legally unrelated. minor a few months later Mr Val made the. Fatal mistake of revoking the protective. order hoping to reconcile with Lori and. save their marriage he began paying. visits to his exwife's home missing the. children and hoping for a family Recon. cleation on July 11 2019 Charles arrived. to see his children and was fatally shot. twice in the chest Lor's brother Alex. Cox called emergency services and. admitted to the shooting he claimed. selfdefense alleging that Charles had. attacked him first with a baseball bat. in response he drew his pistol and shot. twice without aiming the homeowner and. children witnessed the incident their.

Testimonies were somewhat consistent and. the Court ruled that the killing was. unintentional and in selfdefense. notably Alex's head injury was minor. despite Charles's previous experience as. a baseball player capable of inflicting. serious harm with a bat Lori threw a. party at her house with music many. guests and a poolside disco on the same. day Charles body was taken to the morg. right where her husband had been shot. and where traces of blood could still be. seen she did not arrange for his funeral. or tell anyone about the incident. Charles his son's mother's sister and. other relatives learned of his death. only a week later when his unclaimed. body was still in the morg the latest in. a string of mysterious disappearances. and. fatalities Lori sold their Arizona home. shortly after her husband's death and.

Lorie's brother Alex Cox relocated with. his sister and settled in the same. housing complex Lori enrolled her son in. a special need school but her. 16year-old daughter Tye never went to. school she was rarely seen outside so. many neighbors were unaware of her. second child's existence Lori described. her daughter as a dark entity to a. friend over the phone around the same. time on September 8 2019 the children. their mother and uncle Alex traveled to.

Tammy died suddenly Chad claims she had. a cold and cough before passing away in. her sleep from respiratory failure her. death was ruled natural as there were no. signs of violence on her body Chad. categorically refused an autopsy to. determine the exact cause an odd. decision that raised no suspicions. following his wife's Unexpected death. Chad received approximately half a. million dollars in Insurance payouts two. weeks later Chad and Lori traveled to. the Hawaiian Islands to marry in a. Beachside ceremony Dell's Children who. were still mourning their mother were. completely taken aback and unable to. understand their father's actions when. the couple returned to Arizona they. lived together and misled others by. claiming Lor's children were with.

Discovery As Time passed more people. continued to question Lori about the. whereabouts of her children she deceived. neighbors and acquaintances with ease. but lying to relatives proved more. difficult her eldest son Colby who had. little contact with his mother after. moving away made an Earnest attempt to. contact his younger sister Lori. initially answered from her daughter's.

Phone pretending to be Tye but Colby. quickly realized something was wrong. meanwhile Charles family members. demanded access to GJ they wanted to. take the boy on vacation or weekends or. just talk to him on the phone but Lori. consistently refused or made absurd. excuses eventually the boy's grandmother. reported his disappearance to the police. Colby then approached the police to find. his younger. sister when Law Enforcement Officers. knocked on Lor's door and asked her to. bring the children for a conversation. she lied claiming they were visiting. relatives this information was proven. false and the police returned to her. home they gave her one week to appear at. the police station with the children. instead she and her husband fled to. Hawaii Lori was arrested on the Hawaiian. island of Kwai on February 2020 2020 and.

Criminal action rather than selfdefense. according to Witnesses in court Lori. referred to her children as dark. entities and promised to save their. souls there were suspicions that the. deaths of Tye 16 and gj7 were. ritualistic in nature specifically the. Adolescent girl's body was partially. burned weeks before Chad sent Lori an. email rating people he assigned Tye a as. a dark Spirit given the totality of the. charges both spouses fa the death. penalty however in May 2021 Val's. defense team was successful in having. her declared incompetent which halted. the trial process simultaneously all. five of Dell's adult children maintain. their father's innocence believing he.

Hastings minivan was discovered in a. precarious and alarming position nose. down in the creek bed nearly vertically. submerged in water the tragic events. that occurred on that fateful Sunday. evening an early Monday morning shed. light on a disturbing series of. incidents the chain of events began when. Kurt REM a concerned member of the. public was walking his dog near eastn. Road and lipid Avenue he came across a. man who approached him urgently. reporting a car crash involving a young. girl in the creek The Stranger visibly. shaken asked Kurt to join him in.

Investigating the scene together they. went down to the creek and the man. informed Kurt that the girl would later. identify Kurt immediately dialed 911. after Zoe Hastings tragically died. fearing the worst however the mysterious. man who had initially alerted him fled. the scene before police arrived upon. their arrival the police discovered Zoe.

Sunday evening until Monday morning when. her body was discovered as the. investigation progressed it was. discovered that after leaving her house. Zoe Hastings stopped briefly at a. Walgreens on Garland Road to return a. Red Box movie on her way to the Bible. study the Walgreens was so close to her. house that she could see it from the.

Parking lot she returned the movie at. 4:42 p.m. however authorities wanted to. know what happened after that and why. she didn't show up for the 5:00 p.m.. Bible study as the investigation into. Zoe Hastings tragic death continued two. key Witnesses came forward the witnesses. said they saw a woman near a minivan in. the parking lot outside the Walgreens. store one of the witnesses described. seeing an AfricanAmerican man approach. the woman quickly to their surprise both. people entered the minivan with the man. behind the wheel the second witness. stated that the man appeared to be. holding something in his hand during the. encounter after exchanging words with. the woman they both quickly entered the. minivan which drove away from the scene. the discovery of DNA on the knife found. in the creek sparked a breakthrough in.

The case the DNA evidence was linked to. a man whose genetic profile had already. been recorded in the law enforcement. database this individual was identified. as Antonio kran Antonio vehemently. denied being involved in Zoe's murder. nonetheless based on DNA evidence and. witness statements he was charged with. capital murder the charges were based on. the belief that Zoe's murder occurred. during a kidnapping or attempted. kidnapping or attempted kidnapping the. prevailing Theory among law enforcement. was that Zoe's abduction and subsequent. murder were random with no prior. relationship between her and Antonio. when Antonio crain's trial began he. pleaded not guilty the prosecution's. case centered on the theory that Zoe. Hastings was kidnapped from the. Walgreens parking lot while returning a. Red Box movie Just across the street.

From her house on that fateful Sunday. afternoon this theory was supported by. the testimony of two key Witnesses who. appeared in court to give their versions. of events the first witness Lester Le. Clark identified himself as a tattoo. artist who worked worked near the. intersection of Garland Road and PV Road. in East Alice he testified at around. 4:45 p.m. as he approached the Walgreens. he noticed a woman presumably Zoe near. the red box kiosk she appeared to be. returning or retrieving a movie as she. entered her minivan a short heavy set. AfricanAmerican male quickly approached. her and grabbed the car door sparking an. animated but brief conversation between. the two that lasted no more than 5. Seconds Lester stated that he couldn't. hear what they were saying but he did. notice that the woman at the driver's.

Side door had moved to the passenger. side the man got into the minivan and. quickly drove away the second witness. Gary Whitman was homeless at the time. and stated that he was across the street. from the Walgreens around 4: or4 p.m. on. Sunday afternoon he described a stout. heavy set AfricanAmerican man who stood. about 5 ft 8 or 9 in tall and walked. aggressively but discreetly he thought. the man was trying not to draw attention. to himself Gary reported that the man. approached the woman in a minivan in the. Walgreens parking lot from behind as she. attempted to enter it he claimed that. the man extended his arms to block her. path and appeared to pull something from. his pocket although he couldn't see the. exact object Gary saw both people get. into the minivan with the man taking the. wheel and driving away Gary's immediate.

Response according to the court was to. seek help because he did not have access. to a phone he approached an employee at. a nearby convenience store and asked. them to dial 9111 the court heard. testimony from several researchers who. carried out the tests Gloria John dimik. a mitochondrial DNA analyst told the. court that several hairs were discovered. at the scene while mitochondrial DNA. does not provide a unique identifier it. can be used to exclude people according. to the analysis the hair found on Zoe's. left arm could belong to Antonio kran. there was more evidence against the. defendant Copeland's DNA was discovered. on the handle of a knife which had been. covered in Zoe's blood the prosecution. claimed that after abducting Zoe. Hastings from the parking lot kran drove. her to a creek where he raped and killed.

Her cell tower data confirms that. Cochran's cell phone pinged on Sunday. near the location where Zoe's body was. discovered prior to zo's abduction cokan. sent several text messages to various. people at 1:48 a.m the first text. message was sent to Gillis Pina. Cochran's neighbor Antonio who stated. that he intended to leave the house he. and Gillis rented together at 2: p.m. he. messaged his exgirlfriend Angie Simon. informing her that Raina who had been. like a mother to him had died the day. before he also messaged someone named. Mimi at 225 p.m. and 319 p.m. telling. her that he'd been crying drinking. alcohol and driving aimlessly around. town at 4:34 p.m. Antonio's cell phone. communicated with a specific trans on a. Dallas radio tower which covered the. Walgreen store Antonio sent another text. message from his smartphone this time it.

Was addressed to Frank Torres Gillis. Pena's brother I really need you brother. I'm not sure what's wrong with Me Frank. a lot has happened I need you brother. Antonio according to the court began. working as a checker at a fiesta Mark. grocery store just two days before Zoe's. murder he was supposed to work the day. after Zoe died but he did not show up. for his shift the prosecutor also. informed the judge that a detailed. search history was conducted on Cocker's. cell phone between October 13 and. October 13 and October 23 he searched. for local and crime news 32 times five. of which were about Zoe's death prior to. that Antonio had shown little interest. in crime stories having only opened the. news once in the previous month with a. report on local gang. crimes the defense presented a. compelling case attempting to cast doubt.

On the prosecu tions claimed that. Antonio kran was responsible for Zoe. Hastings murder they questioned the DNA. evidences validity as well as the. witnesses reliability Paul Johnson. Antonio's defense attorney stated that. at the time of Zoe's murder Tonio was. assisting a friend in presenting an. alibi that placed him in a different. location he challenged the testimony of. two key Witnesses who claimed to have. witnesses who claimed to have witnessed. soe's abduction Lester's timeline and. description of the man involved were. called into question raising concerns. about the veracity of his story the. defense also questioned The credibility. of the second witness Gary who had a. criminal record and a history of illegal. substance use Paul Johnson questioned. How Gary could have witnessed the events. from across the street and suggested.

That his testimony might be suspect. despite the potential consequences for. himself Gary insisted that he had come. forward to do the right thing and was. later apprehended due to an active. arrest warrant the defense's challenge. included the DNA evidence they. acknowledged that Antonio's DNA was. discovered on the knife handle but. proposed an alternative explanation they. speculated that his DNA could have been. on the knife from a previous occasion. possibly while working at a local movie. theater and coming into contact with it. furthermore the absence of fingerprints. on or inside the minivan called into. question the witness's claims that. Antonio grabbed the door during the. alleged Abduction the defense also. pointed out that the medical examiner. found no evidence of sexual assault and. that Antonio was not charged with sexual.

Assault implying that this information. was used to incite the jury finally Paul. Johnson urged the jury to find Antonio. not guilty emphasizing the importance of. making a decision based on the evidence. presented rather than reacting to. popular sentiment he encouraged the jury. to do what they thought was right the. prosecution disagreed and urged the jury. to find Antonio guilty the jury. deliberated for nearly 23 hours over. several days during this time they. requested additional information and. clarification from the judge on three. specific issues including a photo of the. Walgreen store mitochondrial DNA and the. timeline of police interviews with the. two witnesses ultimately the jury. convicted Antonio of the Lesser offense. of murder rather than capital murder. Antonio was sentenced to life in prison.

Marilyn Monroe the iconic 50s movie star. and style icon piqued her interest. especially she watched Monroe's films. several times collected posters and. emulated her style and image it's worth. noting that Kathleen bore a striking. resemblance to her Idol which she. proudly exploited and treasured even. though Kathleen's dream of becoming a. famous model never came true her. photographs were frequently published in. local magazines earning her some. recognition a fan base and the odd. mention on the streets of her hometown. at 28 she finally met William West the. man with whom she planned to start a. family William Jeffrey West better known. by his middle name was born in 1970 in. Alabama to a typical family he aspired. to work in the military or law. enforcement from a young age was a hard. worker in school and was an avid sports.

Department he was tasked with ensuring. the safety of the campus community and. approached his duties with seriousness. and responsibility despite receiving a. service firearm he never had to use it. during his career Kathleen and Jeffrey. an odd but happy couple had their pads. crossed in the mid. 2000s Jeffrey was still in the military. at the time and he was married to his. first wife it appeared unlikely that the. stern quiet military man had anything in. common with the flamboyant bold. attention seeking blonde but they felt. an instant mutual attraction their. 5year age difference Jeff existing. marriage and Kathleen's periodic.

Struggles with alcohol which he. constantly battled did not deter their. relationship Jeffrey quickly filed for. divorce te with his new love they. unexpectedly married in a Las Vegas. chapel after meeting for less than 5. months in. 2005 the couple welcomed their only. child a daughter named Lola they moved. to kalera Alabama jeffy's home state and. settled into a cozy custom built home.

Seemed overshadowed by her presence. appearing reserved serious and highly. disciplined a reflection of his long. military career and the double life of a. blonde as Homemaker and kitty cat. despite her best efforts and striking. appearance Kathleen was unable to. establish a successful modeling career. after marriage and the birth of her. daughter she concentrated on making a. comfortable home and raising her. child however the mundane life of a. homemaker was insufficient she desired. attention and recognition with the rise. of social media in the late 2000s she. started actively posting pictures online. initially these were innocent Barbie or. Marilyn Monroe themed photographs. however they gradually became more. provocative and daring according to. close friends her husband not only. supported her new hobby but also.

Frequently served as her personal. photographer it appeared harmless at. first but it eventually turned into a. profitable Venture for Kathleen thanks. to paid subscribers they purchased a. variety of ready made seafood dishes. from a popular local restaurant a bottle. of fine Brandy and absynth from the. supermarket Cathleen had chosen aromatic. candles from a nearby store to set a. romantic mood and they appeared happy. and carefree smiling and joking with no. hint of the impending tragedy as. captured on surveillance cameras at each. location after returning home with their. purchases the couple ate dinner and. drank alcohol Kathleen who had. previously struggled with alcoholism was. transformed by bu it into her online. Alter Ego a kitty cat she asked Jeff to. do a hot photo session first in lingery. and then without any clothes Jeff who.

Was not opposed took several revealing. photos which were posted on Kathleen's. private profile only for fans by around. 10: p.m. however the romantic evening. that was supposed to end in a passionate. night quickly turned into nightmares. resulting in a tragic outcome the body. was found on the road early on January. 13 around 5 a.m. a young neighbor of the. West was on her way to work the sun had. not yet risen but it was bright enough. outside as she passed the west side of. his house she noticed something slowing. down but it took her a moment to figure. out what it was she quickly noticed an. almost completely naked woman lying. motionless on the road she also thought. she saw someone standing on the House's. doorstep who quickly vanished into the. Shadows when she approached during. questioning she couldn't tell whether.

This person entered the house or fled. down the street startled and unsure of. what to do the young woman hesitated. before approaching the body she returned. home informed her parents and they all. called emergency services to report the. horrific Discovery while waiting for. assistance they reluctantly approached. the woman on the ground whom they. recognized as Mrs West and checked for a. pulse unfortunately there was none her. body was cold and exhibiting signs of. rigor mortise Kathleen was found face. down mostly on the sidewalk wearing only. a bright pink bra top a pool of of blood. had formed under her head and there was. an absent the bottle nearby some of its. contents spilled on the road leaving. blood stains on the bottles her smashed. smartphone lay. nearby because it was a quiet. residential area there were no other.

Witnesses that night thus the time. interval between the last sighting of. the West's car around 8:30 p.m.. Kathleen's lifeless body was discovered. by a neighbor at 5:00 a.m. and it. remains a mystery likely witnessed only. by her husband. what is Mr West hiding detective Michael. melhoff one of the first to arrive on. the scene proceeded to the house where. the woman's body was discovered a man. ented the door appearing anxious but. claiming ignorance of the circumstances. when asked about his wife's whereabouts. he explained that he had just awoken and. did not find her in bed the detective. then asked him to step outside telling. him that a woman's body identified by. neighbors as Kathleen West had been. discovered near the house the man. wearing a jacket pursued the officer and. confirmed that the deceased was indeed.

His. wife however Jeff's reaction was. unusually calm he didn't rushed to the. body crying or screaming when questioned. about his whereabouts and activities. that night Mr Wes stated that he had. slept soundly because they had been. drinking the night before and was asked. what he thought had happened he simply. Shrugged implying that it could have. been an unfortunate accident Mr West. also revealed that his wife had bipolar. effective disorder needed medication and. struggled with alcohol behaving. erratically while intoxicated he. mentioned that she used to jump on their. backyard trampoline occasionally missing. it and injuring herself a search of the. house yielded no evidence of a struggle. or violence two glasses and a half empty. brandy bottle sat on the kitchen table. alongside plates of leftover food her.

High heels captured in her last photos. lay beneath the table and underwear. matching the bra she was wearing when. discovered was on the. floor however several bloodstained. napkins in the trash and an open bottle. of cleaner raised concerns that day. Jeffrey was arrested as the primary and. sole suspect in the case Jeffrey noted. in the chronology of events describing. his last evening with his wife that she. drank heavily she disliked after the. revealing photo shoot he hoped they. would move to the bedroom for a more. intimate setting he stepped away to. shower for a few minutes and returned to. find his wife still sitting at the table. drinking absin straight from the bottle. and texting on her phone Kathleen. ignored Jeff's requests to put the. gadget away he attempted to snatch the. phone from her hands resulting in a.

Minor scuffle in which he accidentally. elbowed his wife's face causing a few. drops of blood to flow from her nose. according to him this is the blood found. on the discarded napkins by the police. Mr West eventually took the phone from. his wife and after opening the door. threw it into the darkness he stated. that after this he turned around and. went to bed he was confident that his. spouse would have eventually calm down. and join him he was allegedly unaware of. how events progressed until the police. knocked on his door and inquired about. Kathleen he speculated that his wife had. gone outside to find her phone which she. rarely left behind and had taken the ABS. in the bottle with her to finish he also. suggested that she could have fallen hit. her head on the bottle lost. Consciousness and frozen to death or.

That she had been attacked Mr West. couldn't explain why Mrs Wes was missing. the bottom half of her enticing pink. lingery said or why she went to look for. her phone and bra without putting on any. outerwear hanging near the entrance he. explained such behavior in terms of. alcohol intoxication and the main Theory. the suspect's story appeared suspicious. and inconsistent he claimed to be too. intoxicated to recall specific details. leaving the investigation to piece. together the timeline of events the. evidence was limited and there were no. Witnesses the autopsy determined that. the 42year-old woman died as a result. of blunt force trauma to the Head. most likely caused by the absent the. bottle discovered nearby compounded by. hypothermia at the time of the incident. her blood alcohol level was above 2.5.

Indicating severe intoxication with. impaired coordination and a high risk of. losing Consciousness at first glance. everything seemed to be in order. Kathleen heavily intoxicated ventured. outside to look for her phone bringing. along an unfinished bottle of absin she. had most likely lost her balance while. reaching for her Gadget Fallen hit her. head on the bottle lost Consciousness. and died as a result of the injury and. exposure the bottle containing blood. traces lay near her head and the. smartphone which was the reason she left. the house was discovered nearby however. the investigation found this scenario to. be overly simplistic and staged and. experts confirmed that the head injury. was caused by the bottle beside the body. however forensic analysis suggested that. if she had fallen by herself the bottle.

Would have rolled rolled away rather. than remaining parallel to her head both. Kathleen and her husband's fingerprints. were discovered on the bottle there were. some smudged prints that could not be. identified investigators arrived at a. different conclusion after discovering. bloodstained napkins and an open bottle. of household cleaner in the house their. Theory later presented as the primary. and only plausible one in court. suggested that the couple fought over. Kathleen's obsession with her. subscribers in a fit of rage Jeff struck. her with the bottle resulting in her. death panicking he attempted to Stage an. accidental fall cleaning up the blood in. the house but failing to properly. dispose of the evidence this theory was. partially supported by Jeff's phone's. fitness app which tracked his steps. according to the app he was active.

Around the house until midnight and then. again early in the morning before the. police arrived contradicting his claim. of being asleep the police suspected he. was attempting to conceal evidence. during these times possibly with the. help of a third party. during questioning the neighbor who. discovered the body stated that she saw. a male silhouette on The house's. doorstep who quickly left in an unknown. Direction she couldn't be certain. whether it was Mister West or someone. else in the dim Early Morning Light she. also couldn't tell if this person had. entered the house or not this. information piqued the investigator's. interest given the deceased popularity. online she had a lot of male fans who. paid to see the revealing photos of the. kitty cat as a result a emerged positing. the existence of an obsessed follower.

Among her subscribers perhaps someone. wanted to meet Kathleen in person and. tracked her down in the hopes of making. a more personal connection the. middleaged Homemaker received messages. from a variety of men some with. inappropriate proposals but she kept her. distance no explicit threats or. harassment were discovered in the. communications there are a few devoted. fans living in other states with. credible aliis was quickly eliminated as. a suspect none less footprints found on. the doorstep did not belong to the. homeowners these prints vanished on the. lawn leaving their origin a mystery. could Mr West have hurt his wife his. neighbors friends and family described. the couple as happy and thriving Jeffrey. was aware of his wife's unusual online. activities but regarded them as harmless. entertainment meanwhile Kathleen's.

Social Circle was unaware of her Alter. Ego the kitty cat and the majority of. her followers were unaware of her true. identity when asked if he had ever been. violent towards his wife Jeffrey V. adamantly denied it saying he loved her. too much to ever harm. her however arguments had become a. regular occurrence in their home a. particularly telling text exchange from. January 12 was discovered on their. phones in which the couple argued. heatedly Kathleen chastised Jeffrey for. not matching her vivacity and. temperament even suggesting that they. were. incompatible Jeffrey remained the. primary Suspect with forensic evidence. and gathered information only hinting at. his guilt notably following his arrest. not only his parents but also his. daughter and inlaws came to his defense. firmly convinced of his innocence and.

Claiming he could never harm his wife. trial and verdict after being arrested. Jeffrey West was unable to afford the. $500,000 bail set forcing him to remain. in custody until his trial this weight. lasted nearly 3 years he was offered a. plea bargain admitting guilt in his. wife's death in exchange for a shorter. sentence. however Jeffrey steadfastly refused. insisting on his innocence the trial. which again in November 2020 received a. lot of media attention thanks in part to. Kathleen's online reputation this. publicity put significant strain on the. judges and jurors by this point third. party involvement in the events of that. fateful night had been ruled out the. prosecution maintained that all evidence. pointed to Mr West they believed he was. jealous and struck his wife with a. bottle while under the influence of.

Alcohol resulting in fatal injuries in a. panic they suggested that he staged the. scene to look like an accident and. remove evidence from inside the house. jeffy's defense team contended that. Kathleen's death was unintentional. citing her extremely high blood alcohol. levels as a factor influencing her. balance and coordination Kathleen's. mother gave a heartfelt testimony in. support of her sonin-law she described. her daughter as eccentric but insisted. that Jeffrey loved her conditionally and. would never hurt her she also asked the. court to consider their granddaughter. Lola who had lost her mother and was. about to lose her father on January 11. 2021 the jury returned a guilty verdict. for involuntary manslaughter Jeffrey. received a maximum sentence of 13 years. taking into account time already served.

Notably if he had accepted the initial. plea deal he could have been released. sooner Jeffrey and his lawyers appeals. have all been unsuccessful thus far. share your opinion with us in the. comments and subscribe to the channel. for. more imagine waking up one day and. discovering that someone you know has. vanished without a word that's what. happened to Tina Sandoval in a Colorado.

Tina's sister became increasingly. worried on October.

19th Tina informed Susan of her plans to. meet Jon at his home after her shift. that day Tina found the meeting. significant because it revolved around. Jon's need to sign certain documents and. pay an Irish debt as part of the final. steps in their divorce process however. the situation was tense because Jon was. opposed to Tina's divorce and did not. want her to date anyone else furthermore. Tina was concerned about the meeting. because of some troubling incidents in. the past involving Jon. making her nervous about her encounter. with him Tina contacted Susan requesting. her Presence at the meeting. unfortunately Susan had work commitments. that day and was unable to accompany her. sister in lie of her actual presence. Susan asked Tina to call her right after. the meeting with Jon to give her an. update on how things went Susan waited.

Anxiously for Tina's call all day but it. never came still at work and growing. increasingly concerned Susan decided to. involve their mother Mary turna. Mary went to Tina's apartment to check. on her only to find that she wasn't. there Mary went to Jon's house where he. lived with his aunt because she sensed. something was wrong unfortunately JN. wasn't home at the time Mary's concern. grew when she noticed Tina's jacket in. the kitchen indicating that she had been. there at some point fearing for her. daughter's safety Mary immediately. reported Tina missing to the police that. night the investigation into Tina's. disappearance took a troubling turn as. the police dug deeper into the case when. they arrived at Tina's apartment. everything appeared to be in order which. matched their expectations Tina appeared.

To have returned home after a shift. change and then left again inside the. apartment her nurse's uniform was. discovered indicating that she had. actually been there however a troubling. mystery loomed because her car was. nowhere to be found prompted authorities. to launch a search of the area around. 3:00 a.m. on October 20 Tina's car was. found parked only four blocks from Jon's. house the situation became more Sinister. when a police dog tracked Tina's scent. from the driver's seat of her car to. Jon's House John Sandoval was a familiar. figure to law enforcement having. previously been convicted of harassment. and burglary which resulted in several. interactions with police when the police. arrived at John's house he attempted to. flee by jumping out of a bedroom window. it took physical restraint to subdue and.

Apprehend him during the arrest fresh. scratches were discovered on Jon's torso. and neck Jon was initially arrested on. tres passing and unrelated charges. however the police knew they needed to. question him about Tina's disappearance. at this early stage of the investigation. it was unclear what specific charges. would be brought against him in. connection with her disappearance when. questioned by the police about Tina John. claimed he had no knowledge of her. location a search of his home and car. began revealing disturbing items among. the finds were a white 5 gallon bucket. and a new shovel with mud on the Spade. furthermore Tina's credit cards were. discovered in Jon's possession as well. as a loaded 9M handgun rope and. flashlight found inside his vehicle. despite the mounting evidence in the. search for answers Jon refused to.

Cooperate with the investigation Tina's. family and colleagues provided the. police with critical information about. her mental state and the reasons for her. divorce filing they revealed Tina was. extremely nervous about her meeting with. Jon on that particular day given her. disturbing Revelations about his. behavior she explained to her coworkers. that had vurm a psychological disorder. that caused him to engage in Disturbing. Behavior according to Tina if Jon saw an. attractive woman out in public he would. follow her home and conduct a prolonged. observation that could last several days. furthermore he would leave their house. in the middle of the night to engage in. voyerism. Tina also revealed that during these. intrusions Jon would steal women's. underwear and take them home in an. especially distressing detail Tina told.

Her family and colleagues that she was. not immune to Jon's. voyerism that he had watched her and she. described seeing his car parked outside. her new apartment for hours at a time. which heightened her fears and concerns. about her safety Tina had discussed her. concerns about Jon with her family which. she revealed when she informed him of. her intention to file for divorce. he responded with a disturbing threat. Jon had placed a pistol to his own head. resulting in a terrifying and. potentially dangerous situation this. disturbing incident fueled Tina's. concerns about her husband's potential. for harm she had also told her doctor. that she was concerned that Jon might. endanger her safety despite these deeply. troubling indicators and other. circumstantial evidence the district. attorney at the time believed that more.

Concrete evidence was needed to arrest. and charge Jon and the investigators. faced sign ific obstacles Tina's. location remained unknown the. circumstances surrounding her. disappearance were unclear and no. Witnesses could shed light on the. situation given Jon's employment at a. cemetery and his knowledge of burial. procedures authorities conducted a. thorough search for Tina in a variety of. locations including reservoirs and. Woodlands law enforcement also conducted. a grim search of several graves in the. area the graves were carefully examined. to see if they contained Tina's remains. while the investigation was thorough. none of the efforts produced conclusive. evidence the case eventually went cold. leaving numerous unanswered questions. Tina's death certificate was issued in. 2002 by the state of Colorado after a.

Judge determined in December 2001 that. there was sufficient evidence to believe. she was deceased despite the passage of. time the police maintained their belief. that Jon was involved in Tina's. disappearance he had been a suspect. since Tina was reported missing. and that had not changed however belief. alone was insufficient to secure charges. primarily because Tina's body had never. been discovered leaving a critical Gap. in the evidence needed for a prosecution. in June 2009 a new district attorney. appointed to the position decided to. reexamine the evidence which marked a. significant turning point in the case. despite the absence of new evidence he. decided to charge John Sandoval with. first degree murder this decision was. based on the belief that the. circumstantial evidence accumulated over. time was compelling and could lead to a.

Conviction even though Tina's exact fate. and the location of her remains were. unknown Jon was officially charged with. firstdegree murder after being charged. Jon entered a plea of not guilty the. prosecution's case revolved around the. claim that wild Tina had never been. found they were convinced she was dead. after leaving work on the morning of. October 19. 1995 all of her activities came came to. an abrupt halt there had been no. activity on her credit cards bank. account nursing license earnings or. Social Security since that date Tian did. not have a passport and there was no. evidence that she had changed her name. which would necessitate a legal petition. to the court Tina was portrayed in court. by the prosecution as a responsible and. dependable young woman who consistently. attended work and paid her bills on time.

She had recently signed a lease for a. new apartment indicating that she had no. plans to relocate or start over. elsewhere as a result the prosecution. claimed that the only plausible. explanation for her unexplained absence. was that she had been the victim of Foul. Play specifically murder and that all. evidence pointed to her husband John. sandavol as the most likely. perpetrator the prosecution's case was. based primarily on circumstantial. evidence because there was no body or. physical evidence directly linking JN to. Tina's disappearance they were prepared. to present the testimony of 137. witnesses to substantiate their case. claiming that Jon not only killed Tina. but also disposed of her body throughout. the trial the jury learned about Jon's. voyerism following and stalking women. which added another layer of evidence.

For the prosecution to consider the. defense claimed that John Sandoval was. not involved in Tina's disappearance and. questioned whether she was even dead. speculating that she may have left town. to start a new life and framing her as a. runaway the jury however did not agree. with the defense's arguments after 7. hours of deliberation they convicted Jon. of the crime as a result he was. sentenced to life in prison with no. possibility of parole however Jon's. conviction was overturned in March 2016. because of procedural errors discovered. by the Colorado Court of Appeals in the. face of a second trial Jon agreed to a. plead deal he asked for the deal which. allowed him to plead guilty to a lesser. charge of second deegree murder in. exchange for revealing the location of. Tina's body Tina's family had long.

Suspected she was dead and this. Revelation confirmed their fears JN then. LED authorities to Grey's Sunset. Memorial Garden Cemetery specifically. the grave of second world war veteran. Arthur hurt who was one of three open. Graves on the day Tina went missing JN. had buried Tina's remains about 2T below. Arthur's grave concealed by a comforter. covered in a tarp and sealed with duct. tape unfortunately Cemetery workers. mistakenly buried Arthur over Tina's. remains after Jon had hidden her there. as part of the plea agreement Jon was. sentenced to 25 years in prison plus 5. years on parole this sentence was. retroactively dated to August 2010 when. he was originally convicted of. firstdegree murder during the. sentencing hearing JN apologized and. offered his condolences to Tina's. grieving family share your opinion with.

The attention of one of haynes's friends. who took Lewis aside and reminded him. that he had a girlfriend and a young. child waiting for him back home but his. friend's words did not deter Lewis and. he continued to socialize with her Lily. a young girl who had just reached. adulthood and a 31year-old man who. despite his wife and small child decided. to exploit the young girl Lily called. her mother around midnight and asked her. to pick her up in a few hours they. agreed to meet in a parking lot near the. clubhouse Lily left the club at 1 55 a.. and lwis followed under the pretense of. seeing her off Lewis's friend was. waiting outside the club he called out. after her I want to remind you that you. have a girlfriend and a young daughter. waiting for you at home and she is only. 18 of course after hearing these words.

Lily made her own decision but Lewis. didn't react and continued to follow the. girl then lwis and Lily went to an unlit. alley near pemro Castle which overlooked. mil Pond Lewis tried kissing girl again. but Lily foiled his attempt when she. overheard her friend's remark about the. girl and the baby she immediately. decided to drive to the parking lot. where her mother was waiting for her in. the car Anna Sullivan called her. daughter at 2:15 a.m. to inform her that. she was waiting at the designated. location Lily said she was a few minutes. away and would be there soon she was. still on the phone with her mother when. the connection was abruptly cut off. Lily's mother waited for her daughter in. the car but her maternal instincts. warned her that something was wrong at. that point Lewis realized that the night.

Lily down he began choking her. aggressively and when she stopped.

Resisting he pushed her into the pond. around this time a neighbor reported. hearing a woman scream who then stopped. and attempted to call her daughter 30. times without success she did not pick. up the phone again in addition police. searched for evidence they saw on one of. the alleyway CTV footage how Lily's. phone display lit up repeatedly as her. mother attempted to contact her later. while reviewing CTV footage. investigators noticed Lewis and Lily. walking together down the alley and 3. hours and 8 minutes later another camera. captured Lewis appearing on the bridge. alone the video clearly shows him first. walking and then starting to run another. camera at the gas station where Anna. Sullivan was waiting for her daughter. caught the killer just a few minutes. later at 3 hours and 10 minutes Anna had. been attempting to contact Lily for.

The Stranger Behavior seemed strange the. mother couldn't believe that just a few. minutes earlier this nocturnal stranger. had taken the life of her own. daughter Lewis arrived home at around. 3:40 a.m. in wet clothes his arms were. deeply. scratched he became hysterical woke his. girlfriend and begged to be taken to his. parents'. house Lewis was so persistent that the.

Girl couldn't help but comply with his. request so we tried to get away as soon. as he realized what he had done the girl. wasn't aware of what was happening on. the way he said I believe she is dead. which raised more questions at 6 amm. December 17 Lewis was arrested by police. at his parents home Lewis father. contacted the police he asked himself. hysterically as they let him out what in. the hell did I do Lewis Haynes faced. murder charges on December 20 2021. because of the overwhelming evidence he. admitted to the murder of Lily Sullivan. but denied that he committed the. sexually motivated crime he claimed he. killed Lily Sullivan because she. threatened to report him to the police. for rape if he kept harassing her Lewis. claimed that he had an outburst of. aggression he strangled Lily before. pushing her into a pond when he calmed.

Down and realized what he'd done he went. into the pond to help her but when he. realized Lily wasn't breathing he fled. the court and state prosecutors didn't. believe him the judge stated that if. Lewis entered the water it was only to. ensure her death not to save her he had. his phone with him but no emergency. calls were placed that night the cameras. also showed that he did not seek. assistance from passers by instead. heading straight home before the. sentencing Anna whose meaning of life. was last claimed she made a terrible. mistake that night she should have. exited the car and gone to meet Lily. after the connection was lost because. then she would have had a chance to save. her daughter she was horrified to learn. she could have saved her child one month. before Lily was murdered Anna Sullivan. experienced a heart attack and her.

Daughter saved her life she recognized. the dangerous situation and administered. first aid before paramedics. arrived she also stated that after her. daughter died she began to experience. panic attacks and stopped fearing death. because it was the only way she would be. able to see her child again in the. afterlife she described Lewis Haynes as. pure evil who due to his base instincts. destroyed several Destinies in a single. moment it's also terrible that Lewis is. the father of a daughter however because. he wanted to satisfy his sexual desire. and couldn't control his aggression he. killed an innocent girl on August August. 21 2022 a court sentenced Lewis Haynes. to life in prison with the option of. parole after 23 years and 4 months so in. 2044 the murderer could be free again. unfortunately this story confirms our.

Fears we live in the 21st century where. we already have phones for fast. communication the internet and other. Technologies and applications designed. to keep users safe but even that did not. help Lily save herself such crimes occur. on a daily basis in our world and they. almost always end. tragically share your opinion with us in. the comments and subscribe to the. channel for. more a story about the life and brutal. death of a young 27year-old mother of. two Laura Akerson was born April 30 1984. in 2011 she was 20 11 she was 2011 she. was living in Kingston North Carolina. with her husband of 32 years Grant Hayes. and their two sons ages three and two. Laura cared deeply about children and so. did her own children whom she simply. adored Laura met her husband in 2007. Grant was a musician who performed at. bars and.

Restaurants Laura was working at the bar. when they met Grant was a wellknown. local musician with a Charming. personality they began dating but Laura. kept it a secret from from her friends. and family until one day she informed. them that she had married him friends. were stunned particularly Laura's best. friend. Heidi she always assumed they shared. everything in their lives with one. another Laura's brother Jason was. equally shocked nobody knew anything. about Grant or who he was the wedding. seemed. rushed despite this those around Laura. supported her decision Laura became. pregnant with a baby boy several months. later she was overjoyed but grad began. to act strangely as did Heidi's best. friend and Laura's brother Jason Grant. was very quiet always angry didn't like. anyone and disliked socializing with.

Other people then Grant took control of. Laura and her every movement Grant began. to suggest to her that everyone she. loved and trusted was a negative. influence on her he would yell at her. during phone calls with friends and. family to hang up and stop talking to. them because they were a negative. influence on her when Jason arrived when. Jason arrived Grant would begin yelling. ing at her to kick her brother out. because she was not permitted to be in. his company Laura had to go out with her. friends without telling her husband. Grant turned out to be an abuser who. attempted to isolate her from society so. that she would belong solely to him some. believed he isolated her from her. friends so that they could see the real. him and persuade Laura to leave him. Grant also began to behave strangely. toward his son he refused to immunize.

The baby claiming that AfricanAmerican. children are more likely to be autistic. Grant began to use alcohol and illegal. drugs he always used illegal substances. but after marrying the law he stopped. but after the baby was born he returned. to those horrible substances he began to. focus more on his business and had less. time for his wife he went on Long. business trips and dated other women. while working because of the illegal. substances or because they exacerbated. an existing mental illness or disorder. Grant began to have increasingly bizarre. thoughts he claimed that he was the. chosen one that the government was run. by aliens and that they needed to raise. a large sum of money to board a. spaceship that would only transport the. chosen ones during the apocalypse he did. not listen to Laura they began arguing.

All the time he justified his cheating. by claiming he needed connections for. work then he receives a business offer. in the Virgin Islands Grant decides to. travel to the island leaving Laura and. her baby in North Carolina there he. meets a woman named Amanda Amanda was an. actress 7 years old older than Grant and. she was also wealthy because she was a. widow who inherited all of her husband's. money granted he did not hide aanda from. Laura and claimed that she was simply a. tool for his business Laura could no. longer stand being treated this way and. she wanted to leave Grant Laura's family. advised her to flee and avoid him Laura. intends to move in with her brother. Jason however she was unprepared for. what happened she got pregnant with her. second child as a result she. reconsidered and chose to remain with.

Grant she moved to the Virgin Islands. with him and gave birth to her second. son the baby had health issues and. required proper medical care so they. returned to North Carolina Grant wasn't. thrilled with the. relocation he kept thinking about doing. business in the Virgin Islands then he. began using illegal substances and. alcohol more frequently and he became. even worse at manipulating people by. using them for his own gain not thinking. about anyone but himself. Amanda a resident of the islands was in. New York at the time Grant continues to. socialize with her while humiliating. Laura in every way possible in the same. room as Laura he told Amanda over the. phone that he loved her and wanted to. marry her soon he began to leave for New. York claiming that there were more. business opportunities however Grant.

Wanted to accompany Amanda he left Laura. at home with the kids Laura had. completely lost her patience at this. point Grant was not only constantly. humiliating her and cheating on her but. he also spent almost no time with his. family oblivious to their disappearances. while Lara Was preparing to leave her. husband Grant wanted to take her eldest. son to New York for a couple of days to. shoot a diaper commercial Laura declined. to give her consent Laura however wanted. the children to have a positive. relationship with her father she gave. her son to Grant but he did not return. after a few days Laura discovered a week. later that there were numerous photos. from Grant and Amanda's wedding W on. Facebook Laura was shocked and called. him asking are you married to me what. wedding Grant replied I am not married.

To you I did not sign any papers. following Grant's statement Laura. discovers their marriage certificate. which does not bear his signature. consequently they were never married. Laura lived alive for almost 4 years. Laura was in a panic unsure what to do. or how to reclaim the son he refused to. give up Grant and Amanda eventually sued. for custody of Laura's Sons but she was. not invited to the hearing Grant. appeared before the judge alone claiming. that Laura was a terrible mother and. that their son should be in Grant and. Amanda's custody the Court ruled in. Grant's favor 30 days before the trial. began the court also separated Laura's. youngest son from her and gave him to. Grant an Amanda most likely the court. granted Laura's custody request because. she did not have a job or a place to. live but Laura refused to give up she.

Got a job and found an apartment in a. security neighborhood with a. surveillance system she was willing to. do anything for her kids Grant and. Amanda were then relocating to Raleigh. North Carolina to deal with custody. issues Laura was fully prepared for the. trial she needed her children back she. was assisted by a friend Heidi a. lawyer Laura planned to tell the court. about his addictions manipulative. behavior and mental illness Laura. believed Grant possessed sociopathy. Laura provided all of this this. information to the court and the judge. determined that a psychological. evaluation of both parents was required. in this case this analysis or. examination also involved observing how. the parents and children interacted with. one another for several months there was. a legal battle Laura tried not to give.

Up she knew she had to work with Grant. for the benefit of the children she was. allowed to spend weekends with the. children and to call them every day but. Grant made things difficult he kept the. kids distracted played loud music during. phone phone calls and constantly. complained about his exwife Laura. recorded and saved all emails and. voicemails she was extremely serious. about custody she recorded everything. she did with the kids including what she. played what she fed them and when she. put them to bed the truth is that Grant. repeatedly publicly accused her of being. a bad mother he accused her of making. the children ill not feeding them and. even hitting them he even hitting them. he even called the cops once after a. child returned home with a bruise As. Time passed Laura began to receive dire. threats from.

Grant she told her friend Heidi that if. anything happened to her whether it was. an accident or a natural death Grant. would be to blame Laura turned out to be. a wonderful mother after the. psychological evaluation was completed. they had a great relationship with the. kids Laura's children adored her because. she had a steady job and income whereas. the grant evaluation was unsuccessful he. did not have a strong bond with the. children which is understandable given. that children form attachments to those. who care for them Grant never sat with. them he also frequently spoke. disparagingly of Laura saying some. horrifying things about her as a result. of Grant's impaired thinking the woman. conducting the assessment recommended. that he undergo further psychological. evaluation Grant and Amanda's lack of. stable employment had an impact as well.

Also they had a daughter following that. both parents were given an equal amount. of time to spend with their children. almost no one believed Grant anymore. because there was no evidence of his. baseless accusations against Laura Grant. was very enraged a court date was set. but Laura died before she could see it. Grant occasionally allowed Laura to take. the kids to a children's center on. Wednesdays after work however after the. results of a psychological evaluation he. stopped giving her that time on. Wednesdays on July 13 however Grant. still allowed Laura to meet with the. children Laura experienced a joyous and. unexpected event she finished her chores. for the day and had several appointments. then she called her friend and told her. she was on her way to meet the children. and that they could meet. afterwards in the evening she was.

Supposed to call her friend and. cooworker Shavon mathys about their. joint venture Laura however never called. either of the girls Siobhan didn't wait. for Laura to call and instead tried. calling herself but couldn't get through. however after a few days she became. concerned and drove by by Laura's house. that's when she noticed Laura's car. wasn't in front of the house she waited. another 2 days but received no response. from Laura Shavon she then asked the. landlord to open the apartment Laura was. renting and see what had happened to her. they entered the apartment but no one. was present shayon then requested a. couple of Laura's Diaries knowing that. Laura recorded everything in those. diaries for her own safety on Monday. July 18 shayon went to the police. station to file a miss person's report. she gave the police the Diaries and.

Stated that Laura was now fighting for. custody of the children and that she was. extremely concerned about Laura's safety. the cops read her journal and her. concerns about her safety and they. became concerned about having the police. check the security cameras at Laura's. apartment building Laura was last seen. there on Wednesday July 13th at nium she. was leaving the apartment with all of. her. possessions they checked her. appointments all day and she had been. everywhere meeting with everyone about. everything in her diary that she had. completed she made her final call to. Grant at 5:00 p.m. she was 3 km from his. home the police contacted Grant over the. phone he spoke with calmness and. confidence when asked when he last saw. Laura he replied that she had come to. pick up the children at 6:00 40 p.m. she.

Was to take them to the children who had. sent her and spend time with them but. first he wanted to talk about the. details of custody Grant stated that. Laura AG agreed to give him full custody. of the children if you paid her. $25,000 she then left with the children. returning between 9 and 930 p.m. she. left at 10:15 p.m. and it was the last. time he saw her grandfather testify that. he would deliver the children to Laura. on Friday he arrived at the usual drop. off location but Laura didn't show up. the police checked the surveillance. cameras at the location indeed Grant. appears to have arrived with the. children and he left without waiting for. Laura his story seems to make sense the. police have yet to speak with Grant in. person everything so far has been done. over the phone Grant was avoiding. meetings with police officers which was.

Very suspicious Laura's bank account and. phone had been monitored by police to. see if they were being used however all. was quiet on Wednesday on July 20. Laura's car was discovered it was parked. outside the apartment complex where. Grant and Laura previously lived before. Amanda the interior of the car was. spotless with no fingerprints the police. then decided to check Grant's cell phone. which revealed that he was not in North. Carolina he was in Texas as he had. stated from the beginning the two. investigators decided to make the. 18hour trip to Texas to find out what. Grant was up to while they were on his. Trail a search warrant was obtained for. Grant's ra apartment on the grounds that. he'd been ordered by the court not to. leave the state with his children he had. violated this during The Disappearance.

Of his exwife whom he is now suing. bleach stain remover was discovered at. the apartment's entrance the entire. apartment smelled of detergent there. were Furniture marks on the carpet in. addition one of the bathrooms was. missing an item and smelled like bleach. again the bedding was removed from the. mattress but anything the police could. collect as a sample for examination. yielded no results a letter in two. different handwritings was also found in. the apartment stating that Laura was. giving Grant full custody of the. children in exchange for25 $5,000 one. handwriting was Laura's while the other. was Grant's everyone who knew Laura. agreed that she would never sign. something like that in her life everyone. had witnessed her fight for the children. when the detectives arrived in Texas. Grant Amanda and the children had.

Already driven back Amanda's sister. Karen lived in Texas detectives. interviewed her and she had some. fascinating things to say Amanda and her. new husband Grant whom Amanda's family. had never met had decided to pay a visit. unexpectedly they brought a truckload of. different items such as coolers. furniture and suitcases to all Amanda's. relatives Grant seemed strange Amanda. and Grant asked the relative strange. questions they inquired whether there. were any plots of land nearby with holes. they inquired about the well in the yard. how deep it was Amanda confided in Karen. that she had caused Laura a great deal. of pain and didn't know what to do but. she couldn't go into detail when the. detectives asked Karen if she thought. Laura's body could could be in the truck. she burst into tears Karen said yes then.

She instructed investigators to check. the river near her house Amanda and. Grant made a sudden decision to go. boating it was strange because Karen's. house had invited visitors to see Amanda. whom no one had seen in a long time. however Amanda abandoned all of the. guests and went on a boat ride right. away police began searching Karen's home. and property and divers were dispatched. to search the river Karen showed the. police the machete Grant and Amanda had. left behind which he had picked up with. a towel and hidden in a wall in the. garage she did this in case it became. evidence she also kept an unwashed towel. that Grant had asked her to use to wash. something in her truck Karen's son. informed the police and Amanda also. questioned him they tried to ask him. about the local animals such as whether. alligators lived near the river and.

Where they were usually found in large. numbers and whether they could eat an. entire person they also inquired whether. sharks lived along the coast water lies. hampered the divers search but they were. able to discover several white objects. floating among the lies the police began. finding the Bodies In The Water one by. one initially it was parts of the Torso. legs and arms finally they discovered. the head in Karen's home they discovered. items Amanda and Grant had left behind. including a receipt from the store they. purchased salty acid gloves and a large. garbage can at the store Grant and. Amanda arrived at Grant's parents house. in North Carolina around this time and. the police had already obtained a. warrant to seize the phones and truck. Grant remained calm and confident as he. handed over the items He was unaware.

That the police had already discovered. the remains although the body had not. yet been identified police had enough. evidence to charge Grant and Amanda with. murder on July 25th they arrested Grant. and Amanda when questioned Amanda and. Grant's statement shifted and they. eventually started pointing at each. other Grant claimed that Amanda. accidentally killed Laura and that he. was only covering for Amanda because he. wanted to protect her and was scared. Amanda claimed to have been a victim of. his control aggression and manipulation. just like Laura according to her Grant. Laura and Amanda were afraid to tell him. and instead obeyed him at the time the. police needed more evidence to charge. and prosecute them properly they. contacted the trash companies and. discovered Grant's trash which had. already been removed from his property.

They they found gloves women's jeans. women's underwear masks a vacuum cleaner. a shower curtain a bleached towel and a. drop of blood on a glove DNA testing. confirmed that it was Loris blood. however it was unclear who used the. glove Amanda's blood was also discovered. on Grant's boat after which Amanda went. for a ride in Texas dental records. confirmed the identity of the body. discovered in the Texas river. unfortunately it was Laura's it was also. discovered that the body had had been. decomposing in hydrochloric acid for. quite some time the receipt clearly. stated that they were purchasing that. acid later a surveillance camera in. Texas captured Amanda throwing away the. acid residue after they had gone on a. boat ride Laura's body was in terrible. condition making it impossible to. determine the cause of death there were.

Obvious deep stab wounds that left marks. on the bone based on a neck and head. analysis experts believe that death by. strangulation is entirely possible there. was also a sharp object wound on the. neck according to the grant story when. Laura arrived to pick up the children on. Wednesday she and Amanda got into an. argument Amanda accidentally killed. Laura while Grant was in another room he. claims he only saw Laura killed after he. had entered the room despite Grant's. claim that he was only covering for. Amanda police officers did not believe. him on the Thursday after Laura went. missing he drove to Walmart at 2: a.m. I. purchased a reciprocating saw some. blades a tarp and a gym bag Amanda. stated that when Laura arrived with the. children on Wednesday she was in the. bedroom watching cartoons with them.

Laura and Grant were having a. conversation in the kitchen about child. custody Amanda walked into the kitchen. and noticed Laura signing some papers. she became curious and went over to ask. what the paper was when Amanda realized. what it was she became enraged because. they didn't have. $25,000 Amanda claims Laura approached. her before Grant grabbed her mistaking. her for for an attacker Laura fell and. hit her head while Amanda ran into the. bedroom with the children 5 minutes. later Grant entered the bedroom and. stated that Laura had suffered a severe. head injury and that he needed to call. an ambulance so he instructed Amanda to. gather the children and leave the. apartment with her eyes closed she took. the kids to a fast food restaurant where. a surveillance camera recorded her when. she arrived home Grant was just sitting.

On the couch he claimed he was fine. there was no need for an ambulance so. Laura went home Amanda discovered the. next morning that Grant had not returned. home she tried calling him and Laura but. neither answered Amanda asked her. daughter Shaw to watch the children and. let her know when she needed groceries. she received a phone call from Grant who. requested that she purchase bleach and. gloves Grant later suggested Amanda. traveled to Texas to visit her relatives. but they did not depart on Friday Amanda. claimed that she had no idea Laura had. died and that her body was stored in. cooler in their truck bed while visiting. Karen Amanda noticed Grant walking. around the yard at night she went. downstairs and asked him what was wrong. he claimed Laura had died Amanda only. found out the truth at that point.

According to her Grant stated that it. was her responsibility to assist him in. disposing of Laura's body they then. drove to the river deciding to feed the. body's remains to an alligator because. the asset hadn't worked Amanda claims. that Grant was paranoid and carried a. machete on the way back to North. Carolina in however the police were. aware that his machete was hanging on. the wall in Karen's garage much of. Amanda's testimony did not correspond to. the facts on August 26 2013 Grant was. found guilty of firstdegree murder and. sentenced to life in prison without. parole Amanda was found guilty of second. degree murder and sentenced to 1316. years in prison Amanda filed for divorce. in 2014 and in. 2017 she was sentenced to 20 years for. tampering with evidence and pipes Amanda. and Grant expressed no regret or remorse.

During the. trials throughout the hearings Grant. smiled and remained cheerful Amanda and. Grant continued to blame each other for. Laura's death claiming it was an. accident however it is believed that. both of them planned it carefully Laura. was scared of both of them she reported. to the police that she feared for her. life and had received dire threats from. Grant Laura would also refuse to enter. Grant in Amanda's apartment if Grant. intended to kill her there many people. believe Grant chose to kill Laura. because he needed more psychological. help and he knew he was going to lose. the child custody battle following the. trial Grant's parents received custody. of all three. children what do you think this crime. was intended for unfortunately this is a. common story in life people who are in. love do not realize who they truly are.

Perhaps if Laura had taken her time with. the wedding or left this horrible man. this would not have happened so quickly. share your opinion with us in the. comments and subscribe to the channel. for. more on Tuesday January 14 2014 just. before noon law enforcement officers. were dispatched to a residence in Frisco. Texas USA to conduct a welfare check on. Anna Moses a 43year-old woman living. independently her boyfriend Michael. sodnik expressed concern when he. couldn't reach her they were scheduled. to meet for a date the night before but. when Michael arrived at Anna's house at. 7:30 p.m. it was dark or the lights were. turned off and her car was not in the. driveway this was unusual because Annie. usually left her car in the driveway. except for inclement weather when she. parked it in the garage Michael rang the.

Door called and texted but received no. response following his initial attempt. to contact Anna Michael drove to a. nearby Starbucks and waited 15 minutes. he returned to Anna's house and found no. apparent change so he decided to go home. the next morning Michael tried again to. reach Anna via text messages and phone. calls but received no response concerned. he contacted some of her friends who. also reported not hearing from her at. 9:00 a.m. on the morning of January 14. Michael returned to an house and. discovered that her trash bins were. still at the front and packages remained. unopened on her doorstep despite having. a house key Michael refrained from. entering because he was unfamiliar with. the alarm code the situation indicated. that Anna had not returned home from. work on the 13th Michael contacted the.

Police and requested a welfare check. after becoming concerned about Anna's. wellbeing the police advised him to. contact the University of Texas at. Dallas Police which was Anna's last. known location Anna worked as a. statistical analyst in the UDA strategy. department and had worked all day on. January 13th Michael went to the campus. and spoke with the police but they did. not appear concerned they only took. Anna's disappearance seriously after her. boss reported her missing his boss also. informed them that she had not been at. work on the morning of January. 14 following this report a 911 call was. placed prompting the police to arrive. but as residents nothing seemed out of. place there was no evidence of forced. entry they contacted Anna's son eigor. who had a key and met them at the house. the alarm was disarmed at 12:00 or 5:.

P.m. according to the alarm log for the. first time since January 13 morning the. question remained where was Anna the. police searched several rooms and found. Anna's lifeless body in the garage where. she had been fatally shot despite her. death she remained dressed in her coat. and scarf surprisingly nothing seemed to. be missing other than her car her purse. containing money was discovered next to. her her and male was scattered around. her notably an empty Taco Bell sack with. a quesadilla wrapper was on the ground. nearby Anna had seven gunshot wounds. distributed as follows one in the neck. two in the chest three in the back and. one that did not break the skin with the. bullet lodged in her clothing she also. had abrasions on her left hand and a. minor abrasion on her right hand which. could be the result of a fall or.

Defensive wounds surprisingly the police. discovered 11 cartridge cases in the. garage. which contradicted the initial count of. seven interestingly there were no bullet. holes in the garage this led the police. to suspect that the crime scene had been. staged to give the appearance of a. robbery notably no fingerprints were. found on the patio door or the interior. garage door the police believe Anna was. murdered on the evening of January 13 as. she returned home from her job at the. University of Texas at Dallas The. crucial question remains who is. responsible for Anna's murder the. investigation into Anna's death. generated more questions than answers. originally from Russia she moved to the. United States after meeting Robert Moses. their Union led to marriage and Robert. was formally adopted by his son eigor.

Initially the family appeared close nit. with Robert and igore having a strong. bond however as the years passed and. Anna gained confidence in her new. American life she began to engage in. activities separate from Robert causing. strains in their relationship and his. interactions with other men contributed. to the breakdown of her marriage one of. these connections was with Dr John. Wheeler Kowski a colleague who would. generously provide her with financial. assistance when necessary Anna also. spent time with Jerry Casper a man who. shared her passion for Opera and. musicals Jerry was so taken with Anna. that he dedicated books of poetry to her. despite this he claimed there was. nothing romantic between him and Anna. because he was married during their. investigation the police spoke with one. of Anna's friends Dr.

Jacqu a Christian who worked at the. University of Texas at Dallas Dr. Christian described an incident that. occurred on December 15 2012 between. Anna and her exhusband Robert according. to Dr Christian Anna was in great. distress and contacted her claiming that. she was trapped inside a closet with her. two dogs the police were called but the. incident was reported as an. error Dr Christian stated that Anna. appeared genuinely afraid of Robert. recalling in an encounter in which Anna. was visibly shaken and expressed concern. that he would kill me tonight Anna and. Robert finalized their divorce in March. 2013 despite the separation Robert. remained in the house while Robert moved. to a home shared with three other. divorced men most notably their son Igor. who maintained close ties with both. parents and paid frequent visits to them.

Despite their divorce Robert continued. to assist Anna with household repairs as. needed surprisingly Anna did not tell. any friends or family about her. lingering fears about Robert following. the. divorce in fact she appeared content and. happy having found companionship through. online dating Anna had been in a. yearlong relationship with Michael whom. she met through match come when. questioned by the police Robert gave his. version of events on January 13 he. claimed to have spent the day watching. football at home before visiting twin. peak's bar surveillance footage. confirmed his timeline with him entering. the bar at 7:6 p.m. and leaving at 7:57. p.m. during the questioning the police. discovered a small cut on Robert's right. hand just above the knuckle of his ring. finger with blood seeping through the.

Bandage despite this Robert cooperated. with the investigation providing a DNA. sample and allowing the police to search. his room during the search of Robert's. belongings several Firearms were. discovered including a Ruger long rifle. a black pocket pistol and a black. Browning Buck Mark Target Pistol however. extensive testing eliminated these. Firearms as the murder weapon the day. after Anna's body was discovered her car. was found a few blocks away from her. home upon inspection the police. discovered Blood on the driver's seat as. well as muddy footprints on the car's. hood and on top of the vehicle inside. the car a Red Bull can on the backseat. passenger side and a cigarette butt on. the floorboard raised suspicions because. Anna was not known to smoke or drink. energy drinks the police believed that. the blood found in the car was.

Consistent with the type of inj injury. on Robert's right hand subsequent DNA. testing revealed that the blood in. Anna's car matched Robert's DNA sample. when asked about the blood Robert. initially claimed ignorance saying he. couldn't think of a reason for its. presence he later admitted to being in. Anna's car on January 28 2015 explaining. that he was fixing a broken water pipe. in the garage at the time following. these findings Robert was charged with. murder the prosecution built its case on. the assertion that Robert was the only. person with the motive mean and. opportunity to commit Anna's murder. claiming that everything pointed to him. it points to nowhere else their. disagreements revolved around the belief. that Robert murdered Anna for personal. financial gain the court learned of this. on January 13 Anna left for work at 8:23.

A.m. as she usually does and setting the. house alarm before she leaves she spent. the day at work with a tea break around. 2: p.m. alongside Dr Wheeler Kowski Anna. finished her workday at 5 p.m. her usual. departure time at 52 p.m. video. surveillance captured her walking into. the parking garage at work at 5:7 p.m.. Anna drove away from the garage stopping. at a Taco Bell drive through to buy a. chicken course dilia crucially. surveillance near an elementary school. near Anna's house captured a car. resembling Anna's passing by at 5:44. p.m. this begs the question if Anna. drove home with someone waiting for her. inside the garage the prosecution's case. was heavily based on establishing the. timing of Anna's death which the police. claimed occurred between 5:50 p.m. and. 550 p.m. and 5 55 p.m. testimonies in.

Court included statements from people. who live on the street where Anna's car. was discovered Steven Brockway testified. that on January 14 around 10000 p.m. at. 1:40 p.m. he and a friend were moving a. trailer and there were no cars parked. nearby he returned around 3 p.m. and. noticed an SUV park there another. neighbor reported seeing a blue. Chevrolet truck on the street around. 5:00 p.m. and 6: p.m. based on this. information the police concluded that. Anna's car was most likely left there. after 600 p.m. on January 14 it was. revealed in court that the police had. interviewed the other men in Anna's life. specifically Michael and Jerry both men. willingly provided DNA samples for. investigation but Michael denied. possessing any firearms Jerry on the. other hand admitted to owning a 9mm. Glock and a twopoint Target Pistol.

Although the police did not recover. these weapons the court learned from. toll records that Jerry left his. Arlington workplace around 5:1 18 p.m.. on January 13 and exited the rener road. toll booth at 6:00 p.m. this information. when combined with the police's belief. about Anna's death time suggested that. Jerry was not in a position to be. responsible for the crime at the time it. occurred these details were presented to. the court in order to rule out any other. possible. suspects the court was informed that Dr. Wheeler Kowski had been excluded as a. suspect based on toll records confirming. he was in Garland Robert on his way home. at 5:47 p.m. furthermore the type of. firearm he owned a 0 4 caliber Glock did. not match the gun used to kill Anna DNA. testing of the Red Bull can and. cigarette butt found in Anna's car.

Revealed that the DNA belonged to an. unknown male despite entering the. profile into the combined DNA index. system there were no matches the. prosecution emphasized the financial. motive claiming that Robert stood to. benefit financially from Anna's death a. review of his financial records revealed. that several credit cards were nearly. maxed out during police interviews. Robert allegedly expressed a strong. interest in Anna's. finances Michael informed the police. that shortly after Anna's death Robert. inquired about her financial situation. and approached Anna's mother to inquire. about the location of Anna's jewelry Dr. Christian testified that she overheard. Robert saying that it would be. beneficial if he lived in Anna's house. to avoid the cost of maintaining two. homes Tatiana Heber another Anna friend.

Described Robert as a businessman who. was interested in Anna's bank accounts. passwords and other documents the court. learned that Frank schra Anna's. independent executive advised eigor to. set up a trust but Robert told him to. deposit the money in a bank account. instead igore was named the benefit. beneficiary of Anna's. $750,000 life insurance policy on. February 4 2015 Anna's estate deposited. $25,000 into Robert and Igor's joint. bank account eigor claimed that the. money was used to pay off the car he was. driving which Robert had previously. owned and had since transferred to eigor. the proceeds were also used to pay off. Anna's mortgage the defense claimed that. in their focus on Robert the police. failed to thoroughly investigate other. men in Anna's life they stated that the. items discovered in Anna's car as well.

As the footprints did not match Robert's. DNA and that the weapon used to murder. Anna had yet to be found in Robert's. defense it was argued that he was not. financially impacted by Anna's death. Robert claimed that his move into Anna's. house was solely to assist eigor who was. the beneficiary of his life. insurance eigor supported this claim. testifying that Robert's decision to. move in was his own motivated by a. desire for assistance in managing bills. and household responsibilities the trial. revealed that Anna took excellent care. of eigor doing everything for him so it. was not uncommon for him to seek. assistance with bill payment Iger. testified about the blood stain. discovered in Anna's car claiming that. it had been there for years and was not. a new or fresh stain the defense also. questioned the accuracy of the time of.

Death the medical examiner stated during. the trial that Anna's stomach contents. had been nearly completely digested the. defense argued that if she had eaten the. quesadilla and and died before 6: p.m.. there would have been more identifiable. food remnants in her stomach this raises. the possibility that she was murdered. later providing an alibi for Robert and. some of Anna's other male. acquaintances despite the defense's. arguments a Colin County jury found. Robert Arthur Moses guilty of. firstdegree murder of his ex-wife Anna. over finances in their relationship in. late 2016 sentencing him to life in. prison after more than 8 hours of. deliberation in court prosecutors. referred to the then 64year-old as a. calculating killer claiming that Anna 43. was targeted and ambushed at the time. she died she was shot in her prime and.

No one should ever fear him again. following his conviction he filed an. appeal to challenge the Court's decision. Robert's appeal focused on a lack of. evidence claiming that the conviction. was based solely on conjecture and. speculation the appeal centered on. specific pieces of evidence including. the chicken quesadilla from Taco Bell. and The Unexplained large sum of money. in Anna's savings account at the time of. her death concerning the chicken quest. idea the appeal focused on Dr Williams. testimony which challenged the. established time of Anna's death Dr roor. acknowledged that if Anna had eaten a. chicken quesadilla on her way home at. 5: 45 p.m. it is reasonable to expect. the stomach contents to be partially. digested after being shot 10 minutes. later however he testified that he could. not recognize any type of food in Anna's.

Stomach contents casting doubt on the. timeline's. accuracy the appeal argued that the. uncertainty about the digestion of the. chicken quesadilla calls into question. the accuracy of Anna's time of death. implying that she was killed after 7. p.m. is true this assertion would. provide an alibi for Robert who was. reportedly at the Twin Peaks bar at the. time furthermore the appeal highlighted. Anna's substantial savings account. emphasizing the significant in increase. in funds over a 23month period despite. the fact that her spending records. showed she spent the majority of her. income the appeal faulted the police for. failing to investigate the source of the. funds however the state appeals court. rejected Robert's arguments regarding. the quesadilla the court stated that no. one knew what happened to it or if Anna.

Consumed it regarding Anna's savings the. court noted that prosecutors brought it. up during the trial claiming that some. of the money came from a former romantic. interest who wanted to help Anna despite. the appeal the court upheld Robert's. conviction and he is still. incarcerated the rejection of the appeal. upholds the previous judgment and. preserves the trial outcome share your. opinion with us in the comments and. subscribe to the channel for. more in the quiet town of Aspen Colorado. a chilling mystery unfolded on a cold.

Dr SS determined that Nancy died from. three or four vicious blows to the Head. delivered with a hard object with a. slightly curved Edge although he. couldn't identify the exact weapon used. he could tell that the business end of. the instrument was small about an inch.

Police investigation took a critical. turn when they looked into the complex. relationships between Nancy Foster the. victim and the stylers her tenants made. it clear that there was more to the. story than what first appeared Nancy. Foster's decision to rent out her. luxurious Mountain Home during her. annual warm weather vacations became an. important piece of the puzzle her ad on. in the Aspen Times was straightforward. offering a threebedroom home with three. and a half. bathrooms strategically located on the. mountain side the Only Rule was no cats. this advertisement pequ the interest of. Trey and Nancy Styler who were. considering a fresh start in Aspen away. from their troubles in Denver at first. glance The Stylist seemed to be ideal. tenants Nancy Styler a worldrenowned. expert and Lily padet a retired.

Anesthesiologist who was forced to leave. his position due to a debilitating. neurological disease appeared to be. responsible people who would take good. care of the property however their. seemingly peaceful lives had been. upended by a series of setbacks lawsuits. depleted their savings leaving them in. financial distress Trey's illness forced. him to resign from his position as chief. of staff at a Denver hospital causing. additional hardship in a desperate. attempt to reinvent themselves they. decided to relocate to Aspen a wealthy. and promising destination Nancy styler's. medical background had led her to. consider new possibilities she had taken. Botox and laser treatment courses in the. hopes of opening her own Spa in Aspen. the presence of wealthy residents. celebrities and tourists in the area. made it an appealing Prospect when they.

Came across Nancy fe's advertisement it. appeared to be the ideal opportunity for. them to establish themselves and make. connections in their new community so. the stylists became Nancy fister's. tenants the oncepromising landlord. tenant relationship had mysteriously. deteriorated to the point where Nancy. Foster died brutally in her own home the. police were now faced with the daunting. task of unraveling the events that had. led to this tragic outcome attempting to. determine the motives and circumstances. surrounding Nancy Foster's disturbing. murder the police's conversation with. Trey and Nancy Styler provided a vivid. picture of their deteriorating. relationship with Nancy Foster it was. clear that their initial enthusiasm for. the tendency had faded resulting in a. deep animosity rancy Styler described.

Their initial interactions with Nancy. Feister as positive they had quickly. responded to her at in October and were. warmly welcomed into her home Nancy. Foster even expressed an interest in. investing in their new business. venture however the situation worsened. after they moved in the stylists claimed. that Nancy Fosters Behavior changed. dramatically becoming demanding and in. their words akin to being treated like a. slave as a result when Nancy feiser left. for Australia in November 2013 the. stylists were relieved of her absence. during Nancy Foster's absence during. Nancy Foster's absence she had asked her. friend Cathy to collect rent and care. for her Labradoodle however by January. 2014 tensions had risen Nancy Fe began. posting complaints on Facebook alleging. that the stylists had stopped paying. their rent and owed her money for.

Utilities rancy Styler acknowledged. receiving several messages and emails. from Nancy Fister during this time in an. unexpected turn of events Nancy Foster. informed the stylers in February 2014. that she was returning 3 months earlier. than planned and demanded that they. vacate her home before she arrived when. Nancy feiser returned home she. discovered that some of the stylists. belongings including Spa equipment for. their business were still stored in her. garage when Nancy Foster returned she. wasted no time in addressing the. situation she entrusted Kathy with. delivering a note to Trey outlining her. claims that they owed her $114,000 for. utilities and property damage and. demanding payment Nancy Foster allegedly. threatened to seek a restraining order. to keep the stylers off her property Al. though the stylers question the legality.

Of such an action Nancy styler's version. of events indicates that they went to. the house to retrieve their belongings. after receiving Nancy Foster's note. rancy Foster was not present at the time. so they entered the house to collect. their belongings staying until 400 p.m.. the next morning they returned to. complete the task but they still did not. encounter Nancy Fister however during. their visit they noticed ny's dog was. left alone in the house Nancy Styler. claimed to be unaware of what had. happened to Nancy Feer as they had not. seen her during their visits to the. property the Nancy Foster case which. involved her complicated relationship. with the stylers and her disappearance. added Intrigue to an already enigmatic. story investigators were intent on. determining what happened when Nancy. confronted the stylers about the alleged.

Deaths the police's initial release of. Trey and Nancy Styler following a. 12hour interview raised concerns about. their involvement in Nancy Foster's. murder aside from Cath 's report of a. dispute there was no concrete evidence. linking them to the crime however the. discovery of crucial evidence soon after. their release would cast new light on. the case the Breakthrough came when a. man collecting trash just 100 yards from. the motel where the stylists were. staying stumbled upon Nancy Foster's. belongings I learned about her murder. from the news he recognized the. significance of the discovery and. immediately notified the police after. investigating law enforcement discovered. the bag mentioned by the informant which. contained some of Nancy Foster's. personal belongings intriguingly the. styler's Jaguar vehicle registration was.

Found in the same bag raising questions. about why it was in nany's possession. but the discoveries did not end there. the police on earth have an old Hammer. that they believe is the murder weapon. testing revealed that the hammer. contained traces of Nancy fister's blood. even more damning Trey Styler D was. discovered on the plastic bag containing. the hammer furthermore a key to ny's. closet was discovered just a few yards. from the styler's motel room with this. new evidence the police rearrested Trey. and Nancy Styler charging them with. firstdegree murder it appeared that the. pieces of the puzzle were finally coming. together pointing to their role in Nancy. fister's brutal death however a cloud of. uncertainty hung over the case and the. police were open to the possibility of. other people being involved or the.

Stylers Being Framed some of the. evidence appeared to be strategically. placed raising suspicions of a Hidden. Hand manipulating the situation. furthermore Trey's fragile physical. condition as a result of his. neurological ailment raised concerns. about his ability to commit such heinous. crimes alone as the investigation. progressed the search for the full truth. expanded to include the possibility that. other players were involved in this. chilling murder mystery the arrest of. Kathy Carpenter a friend of Nancy Foster. and a local bank teller shocked the. Aspen Community the investigation took. an unexpected turn as the police. investigation progressed they discovered. a number of facts that raised questions. about Cathy's involvement in the case. despite her friendship with Nancy Feer. there were underlying tensions because.

Kathy felt Nancy treated her more like a. personal assistant even though she had. never been compensated for that role the. police suspected Kathy had made a. connection with Nancy Styler sharing. stories about their common grievances. against Nancy Foster one particularly. disturbing Discovery was that Cathy went. to ny's Alpine Bank safety deposit box. and removed $6,000 of ny's money as well. as two family Rings just one day after. discovering her lifeless body when. questioned about this Cathy stated that. Nancy had granted her legal access to. the safe deposit box and that she had. taken these items with the intent of. delivering them to ny's daughter Juliana. despite the complexities of their. relationship Kathy remained devoted to. Nancy and considered her a close friend. she admitted that Nancy could be demand.

Handing and frequently gave orders but. she also emphasized the enjoyable times. they had together which fueled the. police's suspicions according to records. Nancy Styler called Cathy three or four. times on February 26th shortly before. Nancy Foster's lifeless body was. discovered this communication pattern. fueled the investigator's belief that. the three individuals Were Somehow. connected to Nancy Foster's murder the. twists and turns of Nancy fe's tragic. death continued with a shocking. revelation. just weeks before the trial was. scheduled to begin Trey a key figure in. the investigation made an unexpected. decision he approached the judge and. expressed his willingness to confess to. the crime Trey's confession resulted in. a shocking plea deal in which he pleaded. guilty to second degree murder and. accepted a 20year prison sentence Trey.

Offered to reveal the horrific details. of what had happened to Nancy Fister. however a critical and Fateful aspect of. this plea agreement was that Nancy. Styler Trey's wife would be granted. unconditional freedom from all charges. relating to Nancy Foster's death before. the judge Trey said the words that. sealed his fate your honor I am guilty. he went on to give a chilling account of. what happened that fateful night Trey. confessed that he initially went to. Nancy fister's house to reason with her. when he left his motel room his wife was. sleeping unaware of the approaching. tragedy as he entered Nancy feers. unlocked home he discovered her sleeping. peacefully in her bedroom the sight of. Nancy sleeping peacefully became. unbearable to Trey's already troubled. mind his life was unraveling plagued by. Financial ruin and Nancy fister's.

Relentless demands for money combined. with her retention of his Spa equipment. left Nancy seemingly unaffected by the. chaos sleeping soundly in her bed it was. a Tipping Point for Trey causing him to. lose his grip on reality in a shocking. turn of events Trey described going to. the garage and retrieving a trash bag. and a hammer he returned to nany's. bedroom and brutally bludgeoned her with. the hammer striking her repeatedly until. she died to reduce the evidence of the. heinous crime after Nancy died he placed. the bag over her head and carefully. moved her body to a sheet on the floor. she dragged Nancy fe's lifeless body. into the closet concealing it from the. outside world tying it with an extension. cord tray Trey's 20year sentence as. stipulated in his plea agreement marked. the start of a dark chapter for him.

Inside the prison walls simultaneously. Nancy Styler now known as Nancy Styler. now known as Nancy Massie made a. dramatic escape from the shadows of her. past she changed her identity moved to a. different state and filed for divorce. from Trey however the narrative took. another tragic turn on August 6th 2015. tree was discovered dead inside his. prison cell and the cause of death was. determined to be suicide following her. death Nancy Styler Nancy Masson was able. to collect a significant sum of $1. million from a life insurance policy. share your opinion with us in the. comments and subscribe to the channel. for. more D September 2017 a chilling and. perplexing series of events occurred in. a quiet community leaving its residence. in shock and disbelief what started as a. seemingly routine missing person case.

Laura Wallen awoke in her Cozy home in. only Maryland she was 31 years old and. loved her job as a teacher at Lake High. School she was so good at her job that. she was named teacher of the year just. the previous year Laura had worked hard. to prepare for the new school year she. spent weeks getting her classroom ready. for her students she was looking forward. to starting school again however. something strange occurred on that. fateful day Laura didn't show up for. work which worried everyone her family. particularly her parents became. concerned after receiving a call from. her boss informing them that she had not. arrived at school Laura was never one to. miss work particularly on on the first.

Day of school she was passionate about. teaching and her students adored her so. when the lauras received that call they. knew something was seriously wrong they. decided to contact the police and report. her missing the police decided to check. on Laura and her home when they arrived. her house appeared normal with no signs. of trouble it was puzzling where might. she be what caused Laura to disappear. even more concerning was that she was 4. months pregnant the police had to find. her they contacted her boyfriend Tyler. Tessier hoping he could provide some. answers however Tyler stated that he had. no idea where Laura Laura was a frantic. search began Laura's black Ford Escape. was discovered parked at an apartment. complex near the high school where she. worked volunteers gathered in Howard and. Montgomery counties handing out flyers.

Featuring Laura's photo and posting. missing posters wherever they could.

Laura it doesn't matter what happened as. long as you listen it makes no. difference what kind of trouble you're. experiencing there is nothing we can't. solve together so many people miss you. there are so many people out who have. not slept and we have not eaten we are. simply looking for you or praying that. you are safe but Tyler was also pleading. for help the police and Laura's family. began to suspect that he was hiding.

Something related to Laura's. disappearance the police noticed some. inconsistencies in what he was saying. and allowing Tyler to speak at the news. conference was a strategy for Gathering. more. information Laura was still listed as. missing at the time no one knew what. happened to her or where she was but as. the investigation progressed Tyler began. to reveal some disturbing information. raising even more questions he told the. cops that Laura had asked him for. assistance according to Tyler Laura. wanted to disappear because she was. pregnant with a student's child and she. was terrified and embarrassed she did. not want anyone to find out however only. two days after that press conference. everything changed Laura was a missing. person until September 13 2017 when she. was murdered the police received a tip.

That led them to a remote field in. Damascus Maryland. Tyler was known to frequent the area and. they discovered newly dug ground in a. hidden corner of the field they. discovered something horrifying with the. help of specially trained dogs Laura's. body was buried in a shallow grave an. autopsy later revealed that she had been. shot in the back of the head this was a. heartbreaking and horrific turn of. events and the police were now faced. with the difficult task of determining. when she died who murdered her and why. the discovery of Lauren's body marked a. dark and tragic chapter in the story and. it was clear that there was a lot more. to uncover Laura's family still reeling. from the shock of her disappearance now. had to deal with the devastating reality. of her murder the search for answers has. only begun Tyler was considered a person.

Of interest in the case because he was. thought to be the last person to see. Laura alive this suspicion stemmed from. inconsistencies in the various accounts. he provided about his whereabouts and. activities during the relevant time. period the police had evidence that. Laura was alive on September 1 as her. saw her that day the next day September. 2 Laura went on an outing with Tyler. during this time Laura texted her sister. about the adventure Tyler had taken her. on the message read Tyler has taken me. on a country. Adventure I am not sure why but it is. for something waiting in a field the. police discovered an important clue. while investigating Laura's Financial. transactions they discovered that. Laura's debit card was last used at a. Safeway grocery store near her only. residence on September 2nd between 8:30.

And 9:30 p.m. what made this discovery. significant was that surveilance footage. from the grocery store showed Laura. wasn't alone during the transaction Ty. was Wan during the transaction Ty was. seen with her this information piqu the. police's interest in Tyler as they. attempted to piece together the events. surrounding Laura's disappearance and. subsequent death but why does Tyler want. Laura the answer lay in their. complicated relationship and Tyler's. hidden life Tyler and Laura had had an. on and off relationship for a decade. they always found their way back. together after breaking up their love. was turbulent with highs and lows but. Laura was looking forward to starting a. family with Tyler unaware of the Dark. Secrets he was keeping Laura was not. aware of this during one of the breaks. Tyler had begun dating another woman a.

Fellow teacher back in 2012 he even. moved in with her while still in a. relationship with Laura neither woman. knew about the other and Tyler was able. to keep his double life hidden when. Laura found out she was pregnant with. Tyler's child her father Mark Wallen. confronted Tyler about his intentions he. was aware of Laura and Tyler's on and. off relationship as well as rumors of. another woman Tyler assured Mark that he. would take care of Laura even showing. him an engagement ring and claiming he. intended to propose he also informed. Mark that he had not seen The Other. Woman in 2. years however it was later revealed that. the ring Tyler had given Mark was used. to propose to another woman not Laura. The Other Woman had agreed and their. wedding was scheduled just a month after. Laura was due to give birth to Tyler's.

Child Laura and the other woman thought. they were in exclusive relationships. with Tyler but the truth was much more. complicated it appeared that Laura. discovered Tyler's deception shortly. before her death she text messaged The. Other Woman on August 28th 2017 seeking. a meeting to clarify something she made. it clear in her message that she was. looking for answers rather than a. confrontation Tyler allegedly began. plotting Laura's murder within days of. sending that message according to the. police he appeared to have convinced the. other woman that Laura was unstable in. stalking him when the other woman. received Laura's text he informed Tyler. who sent a chilling message I could. actually kill her Tyler initially denied. any involvement with anyone other than. Laura when confronted by the police. however when confronted with evidence to.

The contrary he finally admitted to his. double life Tyler was believed by the. police to have brought Laura to a remote. location with the intention of killing. her in order to silence her and protect. his secret life Laura thought she was. going to see some land Tyler wanted to. buy but the reality was far more. Sinister he chose a field near the farm. where he worked a place he was very. familiar with Laura's sister had asked. her to take a picture during the trip. and Laura agreed the police would later. use that image to pinpoint the Loc where. her lifeless body was discovered Tyler. had taken her there twice once in. September 2017 and again the next day. the police believed Tyler shot Laura on. September 17 and their actions following. the murder were calculated and. disturbing on the same day he texted a.

Friend and requested a late night ride. to Baltimore however the friend declined. to advise against such a late night trip. Tyler's response was chilling it's. probably just attempting to clean up a. mess where the prosecutors Tyler's. actions were clear at all all times. premeditated murder they believed that. his meticulous planning and choice of. location indicated that he had intended. to kill Laura in order to protect his. secrets from Tire with the goal of. providing closure and Justice to Laura's. family but the truth would remain. elusive the shocking and tragic story of. Laura Wallen and Tyler Tessier was far. from over as the case nears its climax. in court a sudden and unexpected turn of. events would stun everyone and the. pursuit of Justice would take a new. Direction detectives believed that after.

Tyler shot Laura he used text messages. to conceal evidence and cast doubt on. the paternity of Laura's baby he used. Laura's phone to send a message to her. sister stating I'm about 95 sure Tyler. is not the father I will try to contact. antoan Laura's sister found the text. confusing she had a close relationship. with Laura and was aware that if Laura. had any doubts about the baby's. paternity he would not discuss it via. text message she told the cops that. Laura had dated someone named Antoine. about 2 years before her death but had. no contact with him since then Tyler was. arrested and charged with firstdegree. murder obstruction of justice tampering. with evidence and false statements he. faced only one murder charge because. Marilyn Law requires that the child be. viable outside the womb before. additional charges can be filed when.

Questioned by the police Tyler initially. denied any involvement or knowledge of. Laura's situation however he later. provid provided several conflicting. accounts of the events he initially. claimed that during a heated argument in. September Laura became enraged and. attacked him with scissors causing her. to fall and seemingly die after. colliding with a porch post Tyler buried. her in a field believing she had died. when questioned about the gunshot wound. found during the autopsy he stated that. he was concerned that he had buried her. alive and then returned to shoot her to. ensure she was dead and would not suffer. Tyler later changed his story telling. the police that AfricanAmerican men had. entered Laura's home and kidnapped her. he claims they compelled them to drive. to Damascus where Laura was shot when.

Asked why he wasn't shot Tyler explained. that he begged the men to let him go the. prosecution was confident in their case. claiming Tyler was responsible for. Laura's death they contended that Tyler. who had been living a double life for. years was concerned that his secret was. about to be revealed because Laura had. discovered the truth Tyler allegedly. planned Laura's murder after she. contacted the other woman he was. involved with Tyler was supposed to. spend the weekend of September 2 with. the other woman in Pennsylvania. ostensibly to look for bridesmaid. dresses instead he claimed he couldn't. go because of a knee injury sustained. while walking her dog which proved to be. a lie he arranged to meet Laura and. transport her to a remote field in. Damascus Montgomery County the. prosecution contended that Laura's.

Murder was premeditated as evidenced by. the isolated location where she was. killed and buried they wanted to take. the jury to this remote location to show. the extent of its seclusion and the. planning required this visit would. necessitate fourwheel drive to navigate. off road terrain Ascend a curved Hill. and descend to the corner of a grassy. field demonstrating the location's. remoteness and hidden nature supporting. their claim of premeditation they also. plan to show the jury and animal. processing facility near the field. prosecutors believe Tyler used a skid. loader on the property to dig a shallow. grave for Laura's body Laura's front. license plate and cell phone were found. in a dumpster on the property the. prosecution was concerned that. photographs alone would not accurately. depict The Field's hidden maker implying.

That someone familiar with the area had chosen they had an aerial image of the site with a tree line and a photograph of Laura in a truck at the same location Laura had sent her sister a photo of herself from that location furthermore phone records for Tyler and Laura showed them at the location where Laura was later discovered and the prosecution planned to tell the jury that after burying in Laura Tyler drove her car to a Columbia apartment complex where it was later discovered they planned to call witnesses including one of Tyler's friends who claimed Tyler asked for a ride from the apartment complex and requested the opportunity to present their cedy to present their case to a jury on September 28 at 5:00 a.m.

Tyler's lifeless body was discovered in. his jail cell only hours before his. trial was scheduled to begin he hanged. himself inside the Montgomery County. correctional facility in Rockville. Maryland leaving five suicide notes on. the top of his bunk bed this tragic turn. of events meant that the prosecution. would be denied the opportunity to. outline and prove their case to a jury.

Kendra had no idea what lay ahead Kendra. drove into the parking garage to park. her car after work one evening in. September she arrived at 7:42 p.m. she. did this every day but she was looking. looking forward to the upcoming weekend. because she had planned to spend Labor. Day in Mexico with Ricky but Kendra was. not going to make it there a few minutes. later she pulled into the parking lot. two men walking nearby overheard screams. and gunshots after the shots were fired. a Jeep Cherokee pulled out of the. parking garage Hashim said who lives in. the apartment complex overheard the.

Screams and called. 911 the police arrived and discovered. Kendra's body in the garage she'd been. shot it was initially thought to be a. robbery Kendra's expensive purse went. missing bullet fragments in a gun. magazine were discovered on the ground. near her body however after further. investigation and examination of the. scene police determined that the manner. of the shooting did not indicate a. robbery rather it resembled a shooting. The Gunshot residue discovered indicated. that Kendra's hands were up and behind. her head at the time of the shooting the. entry point was at the top of her head. and the bullet exited through the chin. but who could have intended to kill k as. a result of the shooting everyone was in. deep. despair how could this have occurred she. had never disagreed with. anyone everyone had no idea what could.

Have happened there were numerous. questions but no answers yet the police. started their investigation police. recovered surveillance footage from gas. Park 17 the video shows a Jeep Grand. Cherokee driving into the parking lot at. 7:15 p.m. at 7:42 p.m. at 7:42 p.m.. Kendra returns home and pulls into the. same garage the footage shows a man. walking to Kendra Scott R and then. returning to the Jeep police believe. this is the man who shot Kendra the. video showed that there was another. person involved the driver of the jeep. was a woman and she drove out of the. parking lot as soon as the man returned. to the Jeep but they could not be. identified so police released images of. the Jeep and its driver to the media and. asked the public for. assistance the heal worked police were. contacted by a man named chos Louie.

Ortiz who claimed ownership of the Jeep. but was not involved in the shooting or. driving at the time Jose stated that on. September morning two of his friends. Brenda Delgado and Crystal Cortez. approached him and asked to borrow his. Jeep they explained that Crystal was. having car problems so they left the car. at Jose's house for him to fix and he. loaned them his Jeep they were supposed. to return the Jeep to him that evening. after work instead Brenda requested that. he meet her at Chili's that evening and. he agreed that Crystal was not at the. restaurant nor was his Jeep Jose told. police that he was at the restaurant. with Brenda when the shooting occurred. later that evening the jeep was returned. to Jose's. residence Jose didn't expect his Jeep to. be used as a getaway. vehicle he said he became aware of it.

When he saw the police address and. recognized his Jeep when he asked Brenda. about it she said it wasn't his Jeep but. Crystal used it to get dangerous. substances for someone and something. went wrong Jo Jose told the police that. Brenda convinced him not to say anything. because it was his Jeep and he could get. in trouble with the cops jeopardizing. his. citizenship it appeared to him that she. was attempting to manipulate him. according to Josie Brenda offered to pay. to have his Jeep repainted a different. color after speaking with Brenda Jose. called the police the police officers. approached Brenda and asked if she knew. who Kendra was Brenda said she had no. idea who Kendra was and had never seen. her at 742 p.m. on September 2 the. police asked where she was and Brenda. said she was at Chili's with Jose.

Showing them the dinner receipts. nonetheless the police realized Brenda. was involved in the crime the first. suspect in the case stepped forward the. cops questioned her about Jose's Jeep. Brenda said she gave Crystal the Jeep. when the police questioned Crystal. another suspect came forward Crystal. turned out to be a 23year-old single. mother they asked if she was the woman. on videotape driving the jeep she. confirmed her identity and explained. that an armed carjacker forced her to. drive to the parking lot that evening. she stated that her 9year-old son was. with her but the videotape shows that. the child was not in the car when the. police informed her of this she altered. her story she claimed there was no. carjacking and that she voluntarily. drove the man to the garage but she. assumed it was only for the.

Robbery she insisted that she knew. nothing about the shooting the police. officers questioned her about why she. had agreed to drive there even though. she suspected it was a robbery and she. admitted that Brenda had asked her to do. so the cops asked her what Brenda wanted. from Kendra which revealed new. information Kendra was dating Brenda's. exboyfriend it is about Ricky Brenda. and Ricky had dated from 2012 to early. 2015 when they broke up he began dating. Kendra which upset Brenda however Ricky. was unaware of her unhappiness in. February 2015 he ended the relationship. ship and began dating other women when. he met Kendra and may he realized things. were serious and as a courtesy he sent. Brenda an email informing her that he. was in a serious relationship he didn't. tell her Kendra's name and Brenda seemed.

Fine with it saying she hoped to stay on. good terms with Ricky as the. interrogations continued and evidence. piled up Crystal sought a plea bargain. and agreed to testify in exchange for a. lesser sentence she told the police that. Brenda wanted to kill Kendra and that. the murder was her idea Crystal claims. that within 2 weeks of meeting Brenda. they began planning to kill Kendra. Brenda was not simply upset that her. relationship with Ricky had ended. according to the police she was obsessed. with him and desperately wanted him back. she pretended to Ricky that she was. content with their. friendship but her life began to unravel. she was ready to hit rock bottom so she. began missing work Brenda decided to. make it her fulltime job to bring Ricky. back she stalked Kendra and Ricky on on. social media hacking Ricky's email and.

Discovering their plans and travel. Arrangements she started to hate Kendra. even more she believed Kendra had taken. her place in other words she determined. to get rid of Kendra Hatcher Brenda. asked Crystal if she knew of anyone who. could help and Crystal agreed to assist. they started devising a plan to kill. Kendra they met multiple times and. devised various plans initially they. intended to inject Kendra with an. illegal substance or sedative before. discussing shooting her to ask Crystal. if she could find someone to do it or if. she knew anyone as she was from a. lowincome. neighborhood they drove around the. neighborhood asking people if they could. help later they met Christopher love he. agreed to assist and they started. talking about different ways to kill. Kendra they decided that shooting her. would be the most effective way to kill.

Her because it was quick Crystal told. the cops that Brenda had agreed to give. her $500 and she agreed to give. Christopher both the money and the. illegal sub. substances Crystal told police that they. decided to kill Kendra on September 2. because they knew she and Ricky had. plans for Labor Day weekend and would. leave Dallas for a vacation in Mexico on. September 3 Brenda felt they should have. finished it sooner Brenda was aware of. all their plans and activities after. learning that they intended to relocate. to San Francisco upon their return. Brenda told Crystal that because she had. downloaded Ricky's iPhone account to. another phone and used it for snooping. she wanted the murder to appear to be a. botched. robbery to determine where to commit the. murder Brenda and Crystal decided to. follow Kendra to see how she got around.

On her typical day they followed her to. work they sat outside the Salvation Army. store and used binoculars to observe her. movements while she was working Brenda. didn't realize Ricky's obsession with. her head had turned her into a. terrifying person and Crystal didn't. discourage her friend instead assisting. her for money after work they followed. her and discovered the best way to get. into the park paring lot they realized. they could easily get in by parking in. the visitor spot first and then. following another car into the garage. they followed the same procedure for. several days to ensure that nothing. changed they were confident that they. knew exactly what Kendra would be doing. from September one to the day before. Brenda Crystal and Christopher completed. one last check and clocked in they took.

Gloves syringes disinfectant spray and. wipes from Kendra's workstation the. murder was planned to be committed by. Crystal and Christopher alone the. following day September 2 Brenda and. Crystal picked up the Jeep from Jos. early in the morning before meeting. Christopher at Jack In The Box Brenda. was dropped off at the Carolton Library. while Crystal and Christopher went to. Kendra's apartment complex alone they. waited across the street for about 30. minutes before driving to Kendra's place. of employment Crystal left to get her. son and nephew from school and dropped. them off at her grandmother's house she. drove back to Kendra's workplace and. followed her as she left they lost her. in traffic but returned first so they. pulled into the garage and waited for. her there when Kendra arrived. Christopher got out of the car he was.

Wearing gloves approached Kendra with a. gun and shot her as she exited the car. Crystal stated that she heard the shot. rather than seeing it they left and. Crystal collected her son after dropping. Christopher off at home later she met. Brenda at Josie's house where she. returned his Jeep under the terms of the. agreement Crystal made would be the. prosecution star witness there' be two. trials Christopher and Brenda were. charged with capital murder and tried. independently Crystal received a 35year. prison sentence in exchange for her. testimony and guilty plea to murder. charges the police discovered a gun in. the side compartment of Christopher's. car the gun had been used to shoot. Kendra because of this Christopher was. prepared to speak he told the police. that Brenda had promised to pay him in. illegal substances and money and that.

Christopher was found guilty and. sentenced to death Brenda had been on. the run for nearly 7 months before being. brought to trial she was even listed as. one of the FBI's 10 most wanted people. she was arrested in April 2016 in toron. coah HOA Mexico Mexico agreed to. extradite her on the condition that she. not face the death penalty when she was. extradited back to the United States she. was officially charged with capital. murder Brenda's family and Ricky. initially refused to believe she was. involved in the crime they recognized. her as a loving woman of good character. with a good family and Christian values. Ricky told the police that they remained. friends after their relationship with. her ended he even texted her the night. Kendra was shot letting her know she. offered to help in any way she could.

Brenda didn't plead guilty or not guilty. and her defense claimed she wasn't with. Kendra at all and had an alibi in. receipts proving she was at Chile's. restaurant at the time of the. crime however the prosecution claimed. that Kendra was killed as part of a. contract killing scheme orchestrated by. Brenda Brenda did not have to be present. during the shooting to be convicted of. the crime and she could still be found. guilty because she planned and organized. the entire event and she hired Crystal. and Christopher to commit the murder. Brenda's motive for wanting Kendra dead. was revealed in court she saw her as a. hindrance to getting what she desired. she wanted to get back to Ricky Brenda. became increasingly obsessed with Kendra. and Ricky in the months before her death. according to the court several people.

Discussions of about removing her from. the premises Daniel Dorian the bar. manager with a notable family history in. the New York nightlife scene had. explicitly stated that he could be. kicked out of the bar by 4:00 a.m. when. it closes when questioned Daniel. initially claim to not know EMT emti. however he later admitted to ordering. his two bouncers Tim and Daryl as well. as little John to accompany her out at. the designated time what raised eyebrows. in this scenario was Daniel dorian's. failure to thoroughly vet his. employees it was discovered that Tim and. Daryl were on probation and parole and. thus should not have been allowed to. work at the bar especially after curfew. the police then focused their attention. on the two bouncers beginning with Tim. he explained that he left the bar at. 4:15 a.m. to catch the ferry to ston.

Island leaving Daryl and Ma in. conversation Daryl on the other hand. told the police that he had a. disagreement with Ed about racism and. crimes against black men he falsely. claimed to be a US Marshall during their. confrontation Daryl claimed that he had. escorted him out of the bar around 4:00. a.m. but he had no idea how she had. gotten home as the investigation. progressed police began tracking Daryl's. movements between 4:00 a.m. and 8 26. p.m. when I met his body was discovered. his Alibi which involved visiting his. mother in a nursing home was questioned. as yet another possible falsehood this. prompted the police to obtain a warrant. for Daryl Eve's DNA. as well as permission to search his home. and car in order to discover the truth. about that night's tragic events the. investigation took a significant step.

Forward when law enforcement discovered. that Daryl Little John's DNA was on file. from a previous bank robbery conviction. a chilling breakthrough occurred when. the blood found on the plastic ties used. to bind him ET was discovered to be a. match to Daryl's DNA this crucial piece. of evidence connected him directly to. the crime scene raising suspicions about. his involvement in the heinous murder. with this damning evidence in hand Daryl. Little John was arrested and charged. with firstdegree murder the case. against him was about to begin in court. with Justice being sought for a met. Saint gulen's tragic and untimely death. the prosecutions case against darl. little JN painted a chilling picture of. a man with a troubling history of. impersonating law enforcement officers. and engaging in predatory behavior one.

Of the most compelling pieces of. evidence presented to the court was Shai. woodard's AB uction in 2005 shenai. Woodard was walking home when she came. across Daryl who was dressed in a law. enforcement uniform complete with dark. blue police pants a jacket a cap belt. handcuffs and a gun his shirt even. appeared to include a police logo in the. words fugitive agent this guy was. convincing enough to deter shenai who. was then subjected to a harrowing ordeal. darl requested her identification. handcuffed her hands behind her back and. forced her into a Blue Van shanai. wooders instincts told her that. something was very wrong and she bravely. freed herself from the moving vehicle. before seeking assistance Daryl was. later arrested in connection with aed's. case and Shawn recognized him prompting. a search of his van surprisingly DNA.

Evidence from both Shauna and Daryl was. discovered in the van as well as on the. handcuffs recovered during a search. warrant another alarming incident. occurred in the same month as the shaa I. eyes attack a 22year-old woman had a. terrifying encounter with Daryl as she. exited the Queen's subway station she. assumed Daryl was a police officer based. on his clothing replicating his previous. impersonation Daryl demanded. identification again handcuffed her. hands behind her back and forced her. into a vehicle that drove her to Jamaica. on Queen's Boulevard the woman's ordeal. continued as Daryl wrapped a jacket. around her head taped a blackk knit cap. to her face and slipped she was sexually. assaulted which was a horrifying and. deeply traumatic event the Grim reality. was that like the shenai abduction this.

Crime went unsolved until I met a s. gin's murder only after the. investigation into the emti case. revealed these horrifying details did a. pattern of escalating predatory behavior. become clear the prosecution argued that. each of these attacks had a Common. Thread darl Little John's Abduction of. women walking alone often under the. guise of a law enforcement officer what. distinguished a meta case was the tragic. outcome as the prosecution contended. that she was murdered because she had. the potential to identify her abductor. and embed his knowledge of where Daryl. worked and her ability to identify him. represented a dangerous liability for. Daryl leading to the heinous act that. ultimately took her life this disturbing. pattern of behavior painted a bleak. picture of Daryl Little John as a serial. abductor and sexual predator leaving the.

Jury to Grapple with the horrific. details of these crimes while Seeking. Justice for saint and the other victims. the prosecution's case against Daryl. Little John painted a bleak and. disturbing picture of what happened. after he was tasked with accompanying. iMat Saint gilen from the bar according. to the prosecution Daryl kidnapped her. during a storm and took her to his. basement home in Queens where she. suffered a horrific and traumatic ordeal. it was claimed that he sexually. assaulted her bound her wrists and. ankles and used tape to tightly cover. her face and head during the terrifying. attack while she fought for her life. resulting in broken fingers and bloodied. hands the prosecution believed that the. blood found on the ties used to bind him. at his wrists was caused by a nosebleed. Daryl experience during the struggle.

Additionally scratches on Daryl's neck. during his police questioning were. viewed as potential evidence of a. violent confrontation the prosecution. also presented compelling cell phone. evidence against Daryl who left his. phone near the scene where Ed's lifeless. body was discovered the tracking of his. cell phone revealed a brief movement. from his Queen's home to the vicinity of. emt's body mamadu a security guard and. route to his construction site on.

Description fit van adding to the. mounting evidence against him an. anonymous 911 call a call was placed at. 8:43 p.m. that night suspicions grew. more intense fiber analysis presented in. court revealed that the bed spread and. tape used to wrap in Met's body as well. as the van contained fibers similar to. carpet fibers rabbit hair and mink fur. found in Daryl's home the fence. vehemently maintained Daryl's innocence. claiming that he was set up a attorney. Joyce David claimed that Daryl was. chosen because of his extensive criminal. history the defense argued that the true. perpetrator was Daniel Dorian the. manager of the false bar they argued. that Daniel a member of a wealthy and. influential family may have had his. powerful family cover up the crime in a. pivotal moment during the trial Daniel. Dorian took the stand and admitted that.

He had initially been less than. forthcoming with investigators about. kicking iMed out of the bar due to. concerns about the negative publicity it. would generate he vehemently denied any. involvement with a mass murderer and. claimed innocence the trial produced two. opposing narratives one from the. prosecution painting Daryl Little John. as a violent sexual predator responsible. for eda's tragic death and another from. the defense pointing fingers at Daniel. Dorian as a potential suspect ultimately. it was up to the jury to weigh the. evidence and consider the arguments. presented by both sides after less than. 7 hours of deliberation the jury. returned their verdict finding Daryl. Little John guilty of the charges. against him this marks the conclusion of. a lengthy and emotionally charged trial. Daryl was sentenced to life in prison.

With no chance of parole ensuring that. he would never again be a threat to. society in addition he received a. 25year to life sentence for kidnapping. shanai Woodard share your opinion with. us in the comments and subscribe to the. channel for more. on an ordinary November day in 2003 a. chilling mystery began to play out in. the peaceful town of Grand Forks North.

Accused of transporting Drew across. state lines prior to her tragic death. added to the gravity of the crime as a. result he faced federal charges allowing. the prosecution to consider seeking the. death penalty which they made abundantly. clear throughout the trial the. prosecution maintained that there was no. room for. doubt Drew was kidnapped outside the. mall transported across state lines and. eventually murdered they also expressed. their belief that she had inv violated. the jury was presented with compelling. evidence including a knife found in. Alfonso car and a knife sheath. discovered near Drew's vehicle DNA. analysis linked Alfonso to the crime as. did the recovery of hair and fiber. samples from Drew's body and belongings. Dr Michael McGee the medical examiner. was an important figure in the courtroom.

Drama he testified about Drew's injuries. and the circumstances of her death he. identified significant cuts on her neck. as the likely cause of her death though. he couldn't rule out Suffocation or. exposure doctor the gize expert opinion. based on his extensive experience and. thousands of autopsies suggested that. Drew died violently during the assault. the condition of her clothing. particularly a torn pink sweater and. displaced peac coat indicated a struggle. the defenses perspective differed. significantly from the. prosecutions Alfonso had offered to. plead guilty in order to avoid the death. penalty but this was declined the main. point of contention was whether Drew was. raped as well as the critical question. of where she died the latter would. decide whether to impose the death. penalty the defense claimed that there.

Was insufficient evidence to support a. rape allegation and that Drew died from. Suffocation mere minutes after being. abducted Alfonso was eventually found. guilty in federal court of kidnapping. which resulted in Drew's death after. considering both sides arguments the. jury unanimously recommended the death. penalty marking a historic decision for. North Dakota which had not seen a death. sentence in nearly a century because the. death penalty is illegal in the state it. is only considered in federal cases the. sentencing was a difficult moment for. judge Ralph R Ericson who acknowledged. the gravity of the situation saying it. was the worst day of his life Alfonso. and his attorneys immediately requested. a new trial which was denied they. appealed and asked for a stay of. execution until the appeal was heard in.

2020 one Ralph R Ericson the same judge. who sentenced Rodriguez to death. overturned his sentence and ordered a. new sentence ing phase due to misleading. testimony from a medical examiner and. limitations on Mental Health evidence. Michael McGee the Ramsey County Medical. Examiner testified in court in an. untrustworthy misleading and inaccurate. Manner and Rodriguez's attorneys did him. a disservice by limiting Rodriguez's. mental health evaluation which could. have resulted in their client using the. insanity defense on March 14. 2023 prosecutors announced that they. would no longer seek the death penalty. for Rodriguez who had been sentenced to. life without parole on May 18. 2023 share your opinion with us in the. comments and subscribe to the channel. for. more Daniel and David twins have always. made important decisions together since.

They were children they both chose to. work as Mechanics for the same athletic. team and frequently finished each. other's sentences nobody could have. predicted that the brothers would one. day conspire in an almost perfect crime. together after all even if the police. had discovered DNA the prosecutor would. not have been able to persuade a jury of. Dan or David's Guild standard forensic. DNA analysis cannot distinguish between. identical twins because their genetic. profiles are nearly identical and a jury. will always have room for reasonable. doubt it took law enforcement officials. 10 years to apprehend the brothers only. because David agreed to a deal with the. prosecutor and testified against Daniel. were the police able to resolve the case. that will be discussed today on July 22. 2003 her husband with whom she was.

Divorcing drove up to Heather's parents. house the final divorce hearing was only. one week away the man got out of the car. carrying a large bouquet of flowers and. a card with a touching picture hoping to. reconcile and avoid divorce the reason. he kept the marriage alive alive was not. because he loved his wife or wanted to. keep the family together Daniel realized. that the Court's decision to pay alimony. would not leave him with enough money to. live his normal life maybe he even lost. his house the man was desperate for an. escape and expected to solve the problem. with a bouquet of flowers and promises. but the plan failed Heather flatly. rejected Daniel's proposal Heather's. father Dave Springer had to intervene. after the conversation became violent. only after Dave promised to call the. cops did Daniel angrily yell that.

Heather was ruining his life and. abandoned the house sprayer a former. Denver Police Department Officer. realized instinctively that his. sonin-law was a danger to his daughter. he asked her not to see him during the. remainder of the divorce proceedings he. later stated that I was concerned about. what my sonin-law dant to Wild might do. as the final divorce approached he. wanted to keep everything under his. control however control was slipping. away from him he was becoming. increasingly desperate and hostile I. advised Heather not to date him and I. didn't believe she would but she did Dan. called Heather 2 days later and offered. to pick up the Children's medical. records as well as the assigned child. support check initially the almost ex. spouses agreed to meet at. McDonald's the young woman did not want.

To be alone with her exhusband and. planned to meet in a crowded location. taking her two children aged five and. three at the time she said nothing to. the father only alerting the mother to. the meeting clearly something went wrong. to appease her mother she changed the. plan and named the nearest fast food. restaurant as the meeting place Heather. went to Daniel's home in Edgewater. Colorado where he lived with his. identical twin brother David and David's. then girlfriend Roseanne rather than. McDonald's Heather believed that in the. presence of the children Jacob and. Hannah their father would not be. aggressive and that he was not alone at. home and then the young woman vanished. she was not seen alive again Heather. Springer was born on April 21 19 1973 in. Arvada Colorado her father David. Springer worked for the Denver Police.

Department and was well respected by his. colleagues the man did everything he. could to ensure his beloved wife Carol. Heather and her two older sisters. Rebecca and Jennifer had everything they. needed the family provided a friendly. warm environment of mutual understanding. for her sisters their father exemplified. masculinity responsibility and Care. during her youth Heather attempted to. form relationship ship with her peers. but nothing came out when she met Dan. wild was 10 years her senior Heather saw. in him an adult responsible caring man. who made her feel as calm and safe as. her father Daniel being a mature man one. Heather over his peers the 23year-old. young woman fell in love and did not. look back the couple started dating in. 1996 a year later Dan made Heather an. offer which she gladly accepted she grew.

Up in a family where her father was. always in control due to his. professional activities and she saw the. same quality in the groom as a. manifestation of love and protection. unfortunately she was mistaken the young. couple relocated to Edgewater Colorado. where Dan owned a home and the wild. family welcomed two children Hannah and. Jacob Heather devoted herself completely. to her daughter and Son's household. chores Dan was the family's main bread. winner and worked as a mechanic in the. transportation department however family. life was not entirely cloudless the. young woman gradually realized that. Dan's excessive control did not reflect. care and love over time he became more. overwhelming and restrictive and his. dreams of a happy Union did not come. true after 5 years of marriage in 2002. Heather began to complain to her parents.

About her. spouse she stated that she was tired of. Dan's constant control it was unbearable. to live in the same house as him one. year later in the spring of. 2003 the young woman informed Dan that. she wanted a divorce she packed her. belongings and moved with her children. to her parents home in our body Dean. reacted negatively to her still legal. spouse's actions even threatening her. which strengthened her resolve to. protect her interests and those of her. children she filed for divorce requested. custody of the children and required her. husband to pay child support Daniel. became stressed because he was. unprepared for the additional. significant financial obligations he was. afraid he wouldn't be able to pay his. bills and would lose his home in the. early summer Dan's Brother David and. roommate Roseanne came to his Aid to.

Provide support and assistance with a. difficult. situation Dan and David de wild. identical twins with only a minute and a. half of age difference have been. Inseparable their entire lives always. helping each other and keeping in touch. Friends of the twins observed that Dan. always acted as a leader making key. decisions whereas David prefer to remain. in his brother's Shadow and hold. secondary positions after arriving David. began working as a mechanic at the same. shop where Dan worked and gave his. brother a large sum of money to pay the. house bills David suggested that Dan try. to avoid a final divorce and supported. his plan to visit Heather on July 22. 2003 as previously stated the trip. failed and nearly resulted in a police. call the brothers then devised a new. plan inviting Heather to their house on.

July 24. Heather's parents house and the nearest. McDonald's were only a few kilometers. apart Carol Springer became concerned. when Heather's daughter who had all gone. to pick up her papers did not return. after an hour Carol called her. sonin-law to find out where Heather was. because her daughter would not answer. her phone Dan reported that she had. arrived at his house left the kids and. drove to the store Carol found all of. this alarming she knew her daughter's. wallet and credit cards were still at. home she couldn't go shopping without. money and cards and she would never. leave her grandchildren with Dan Carol. dialed Dave's number and told him who. their daughter had gone to see and Dave. Springer went straight to his former. sonin-law's house Heather was not. present and her car could not be found. Dan insisted that Heather had gone away.

On her own business leaving the children. with him and would be back soon the. grandchildren couldn't tell their. grandparents where their mother was or. had gone Dave contacted the Emergency. Services with his police background he. claims that his daughter was in trouble. soon Patrol officers arrived at Dan. Wild's house the officers inspected the. area around the house and the house. itself which Dan allowed to enter But. found nothing suspicious outside or. inside so they left the officers only. discovered that the medical records. Heather had requested were at Dan's. house and the child support check had. yet to be signed Dave Springer got. behind the wheel of his car and drove. through the city streets hoping to find. his daughter alive pass through. intersections he stopped to observe. passers by looked at the faces of women.

And interviewed local residents but his. efforts were futile Heather D wild was. officially reported missing the. following morning on July 25 detective. Mark kryder of the Denver Police. Department has joined the search for the. woman the detective took Dave suspicions. seriously nobody believed Heather would. simply decide to flee her family after. the trial and go on vacation leadar told. reporters that Dave was obviously very. concern the case was unusual because the. daughter of a Denver police officer went. missing which added a personal touch to. the situation Mark's first stop was the. wild home the detective arrived at the. address and rang the doorbell Dan the. wild appeared on the doorstep he refused. to let the detective into the house. without wild cooperation krider had no. right to inspect the house which meant.

That crucial evidence could be. overlooked the detective inquired about. the reason for the refusal and why the. wife was unwilling to assist with the. investigation if everything was as he. said he responded that he had a personal. attorney and would only answer questions. in his presence at that point David. Dan's twin drove up to the house Dan. immediately called out to his brother. telling him not to talk to the detective. as krider watched he realized Heather's. father was correct Daniel de wild was. hiding something why did he hire a. lawyer if Heather simply grew tired of. the family and left he's not concerned. about the woman or searching for her. despite the fact that he swore his love. for her just a few days ago everything. appeared as strange as possible but the. detective was unable to do anything.

Without a warrant so he was forced to. leave by the time police got a search. warrant for the wild home Heather had. gone missing for 6 days inside the house. krider stated that the task force. discovered no evidence of a crime weapon. there was no sign that Heather had been. in the house however investigators soon. discovered that on the day the young. woman vanished David drove his Chevrolet. to a car repair shop about 15 mi from. home why would David Drive so far when. the twins who worked for the. transportation department as mechanics. could have done the repairs themselves. krider obtained a warrant to search the. several locations and a detective. speculated that Heather had died and. David had managed to hide her body away. from home to inspect the car they use. specially trained dogs that detect the. odor of a decomposing body while.

Checking David's car the dogs began. barking near the driver side rear side. door indicating that Heather's body had. been in the vehicle for some time. detective krider met with David and. discussed the search dog's reactions at. one point the detective asked David. looking directly into his eyes did you. kill. Heather the man lowered his head and you. could tell he was nervous the man stated. that he needed to speak with his lawyer. and. last after speaking with David the. detective had no doubt that both twin. brothers were involved in Heather's. disappearance a day after being informed. that the dog smelled decomposition David. and Roseanne married which confirmed the. police's suspicions Roseanne later. revealed that this occurred so. unexpectedly just in case because. spouses are not required to testify. against each other then on August 4 2003.

2 weeks after Heather's disappearance. police discovered her whiteness and. Sentra in parking lot of an apartment. complex in wheat reach Colorado about 5. miles from Dan's home according to. locals the car had been parked for. several days with the passenger side. window fully open detectives spent the. entire day inspecting the car it. appeared so clean that there was no sign. that Heather had ever written in it we. discovered no evidence of Heather's DNA. inside or outside the car we also found. no fingerprints or other evidence that. Heather had used the vehicle the expert. explained to detective krider apparently. the perpetrator or perpetrator were. meticulous in wiping out all traces. qualitatively investigators searched the. wooded area south of the apartment. complex where the car was discovered. they utilized trackers thermal imaging.

Cameras and a police helicopter the. search turned up nothing that could lead. them to Heather Carol and Dave realized. at that moment that they had lost their. daughter for good exactly 1 month later. on September 4 2003 Heather's body was. discovered by a road worker while. shoveling dirt on the Canyon Road he. noticed a large trash bag on the ground. and called the cops as he approached. meanwhile the body had decomposed to the. point where dental records could be used. to identify it the woman's face was. covered with a duct tape mask and rope. was wrapped around her neck and wrists. the body was wrapped in garbage bags and. duct taped before being buried in a. shallow grave Heather's clothes were. identified by family members as the ones. she left in to meet Daniel on July 24. Heather's exact cause of death could not.

Be determined by the medical examiner. but the nature of her injuries suggested. that she was strangled or died of. asphyxia investigators discovered that. the twins were involved because the body. was discovered on the same day in. Brooklyn which is the workshop that. David visited on the day Heather went. missing the trash bags in which the body. was wrapped had the same general class. characteristics as the bags taken from. the wild home however it was. circumstantial evidence direct evidence. was lacking and krider was unable to. apprehend either th of the brothers Dave. Springer felt crushed by the inability. to do anything Heather was buried her. parents placed a note in her casket that. read all she wanted was to love and be. loved there was a language barrier. nobody informed Heather's parents or. sisters about the investigation's.

Details it even appeared to them that no. one was dealing with the case at all in. fact the investigation determined who. was guilty but a lack of evidence. limited the detective's options after 2. years in 2005. Denver's district attorney changed. promising the Springer family assistance. in the investigation of the case the. investigation team thoroughly reviewed. 1500 pages of documentation and. reexamined all of the cas's evidence and. details however these efforts produced. no new results there was no physical. evidence and DNA analysis found no link. between the brothers and Heather's death. detective believed that in addition to. the brothers involved in the case. David's wife rosenne who who also lived. in the house could be involved but as an. official spouse she had the right not to. reveal information about him after.

Another 4 years Heather's family had. still not found a place the deceased's. father admitted that he sometimes. screamed at night he was sicken that Dan. was sleeping peacefully on the loose. while the rest of their family was. subjected to daily Injustice Ross boot. took over the Heather de wild. investigation in 2009 correct the new. prosecutor approached the task with. extreme seriousness within 6 years the. volume of documentation increased from 1. and 1/2 to 30,000 Pages there were 15. additional boxes containing important. information a DVD of Home Movies. eventually pequ the interest of the new. investigative team Dan Heather had. engaged in unusual practices during. their marriage Dan played the dominant. role and Heather willingly submitted Dan. likes to tie Heather up when detectives. examined the home videotape they noticed.

A significant coincidence the way Dan. was tying Heather up in this video was. very similar to how the woman was tied. up when her body was found detectives. also discovered Dan's profile on a. dating site where he claimed to be a. widower despite the fact that Heather. had been reported missing and her body. had yet to be discovered during the. investigation they were able to locate a. witness who saw Dan David and Rosanne. early one morning near the location. where Heather's body was discovered. furthermore using new technology. developed in recent years experts were. able to rein investigate phone. conversations between David Daniel and. Roseanne on the day of the crime all. three made 14 calls to each other and. detectives were able to determine each. caller's geographical location David's. cell phone was discovered near Heather's.

Car and from there he called his brother. and then Rosanne using all of the. information gathered detectives. apprehended the perpetrators more than 8. years later with only circumstantial. evidence Dan David and Roseanne to Wild. were arrested on December 14 2011. both were charged with firstdegree. murder and conspiracy to commit. firstdegree murder as prosecutors. prepare for trial investigators hoped to. provoke the wild they speculated that. Roseanne could be the weak link and. attempted to turn her against the. brothers it did not work the woman. maintained that neither She nor the. Twins were involved in the crime Dan. David and Roseanne spent 8 months in. jail awaiting trial with Dan being the. first to fall out with David 9 years. after the crime the man admitted to that. he killed his twin brother Dan maybe it.

Was the arrest the billing records or he. genuinely loved Roseanne and wanted to. keep her safe by making a deal with the. prosecutor or perhaps he simply weighed. all of his options and chose Freedom. after 12 years over a lifetime of. sentencing regardless David accepted the. deal without his testimony the brothers. would likely have gotten away with the. crime David described the gruesome. details according to the man his brother. Dan began planning the crime in April. 2003 after he was ordered to pay child. support he carefully considered every. move he made Don told David about his. plan and asked for assistance he stated. that if Heather refused he would still. get rid of her but only on her own David. acknowledged that he was concerned for. his brother he assumed Dan couldn't do. it alone he would be apprehended and put.

In jail right away David agreed to help. Heather and the children arrived on July. 24 2003 at noon as planned when Dan went. to meet them David allegedly tried to. stop his brother but he ignored him. while the kids played in the house Dan. took her to the garage promising to. return the now almost exwife joint. videos that were allegedly kept there in. the garage Dan grabbed her by the. shoulders and threw her to the ground. according to David he had the. opportunity to prevent the crime but. chose to stand there and watch in. silence his brother took a hammer from. the shelf and struck Heather several. times in the head knocking her out Dan. immediately took a rope and tied his. wife up in the same way he had done. during their intimate games but this. time he also made a new surr her neck. and suspended her from the garage roof.

Dan's plan was to make it appear that. his wife's death was accidental during. their roleplaying sessions leaving Dan. in the garage David drove Heather's car. back to the apartment complex parking. lot and thoroughly cleaned it inside and. out by the time David returned to the. garage his brother had wrapped his. wife's body in garbage bags and placed. it in the backseat of his car David. checked the woman's pulse and determined. she was dead he then got behind the. wheel of the Chevrolet and drove to the. predetermined location where he would. bury the body how there might never have. been discovered if it wasn't for a. transmission problem in the car that. forced him to hide the body somewhere. along the way to the canyon because. David had to visit an auto repair shop. to have his car fixed the investigation.

Uncovered clues about the cars movements. when the investigators asked how the. brothers were able to dispose of all of. the evidence so professionally David. explained that they watch crime shows on. TV on a regular basis and knew a lot. about the subject for example they use. double gloves to leave no Trace David. wild had to take a polygraph test. confirm the veracity of his testimony. prosecutors offered him a deal following. the test David pleaded guilty to. conspiracy to commit second deegree. murder and received a 12year sentence. instead of life in prison Daniel's trial. began in November 2012 at the Jeffers. County Courthouse David testified. blaming the crime entirely on his. brother rehabilitating his wife Rosanne. through his testimony apologizing for. all the pain he had caused Heather's. family and receiving 12 years Daniel.

Pleaded not guilty and continued to. claim he had no idea where Heather went. after she allegedly left the house. according to his defense Heather. murdered his brother David after all he. admitted that he was responsible for. disposing of the car in the body however. the jury did not believe that version. they found Daniel guilty of conspiracy. to commit a firstdegree felony but. could not determine whether he actually. did it as a result the judge scheduled a. new trial for just a month later fearing. he would end up in prison with no chance. of parole Dan accepted a plea agreement. pled guilty to a second degree felony. and waved his right to appeal he was. sentenced to 74 years in prison which he. currently serves at Colorado State. Prison he will be eligible for parole in. May. 20445 his mandatory release year is 2084.

When he will be over 100 years old. Daniel de wild will probably not live to. see that date after the trial during a. press conference prosecutor RZ boot. examines the Dynamics of what occurred. Daniel clearly set David up he had. control of the situation regarding Mary. Rose in a wild we eventually concluded. that her knowledge of the events was. less than previously assumed the case. again her is dismissed because there is. no reasonable chance of her conviction. at trial rosenne maintains that she had. no suspicions and is simply waiting for. David to be released after Dan was. arrested Hannah and Jacob were placed in. foster care by their own grandparents.
